Our story begins in 2009 with the “ALIFERT” clinical study.
“ALIFERT”, as in “alimentation” (food in french) and “fertilité” (fertility) is set up as a collaboration group between the departments of reproductive biology, metabolics and nutrition.
The synergy of expertise leads to the creation of an integrated team of university hospital researchers from Sorbonne Université, Université Paris Cité and the Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris.
We just cannot not stop here and have to make the benefits of this research available to as many people as possible.
This is how our start-up is born. Through its name it now picks up the torch lit by the founding clinical study.
