VAIOMER is a French biotech company expert in tissue and blood microbiota.

The vocation of the company is to contribute to the discovery of innovative tools, biomarkers and therapeutic targets related to tissue microbiome. This new concept helps to establish early prognosis and therapies of numerous diseases such as cardiometabolic diseases (obesity, diabetes, NASH, NAFLD, liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, cardiac failure, etc.), neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer, Parkinson, etc.) or infectious diseases (AIDS, septicemia, etc.).

VAIOMER has a unique expertise in the study of microbiota, not only intestinal but also beyond: the weakening of the intestinal barrier allows the translocation of bacteria in blood and tissues (adipose, liver, etc). The study of these microbiota opens the way to a better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms consecutive to the alteration of the intestinal immunity.

In addition to the research service offer for the global scientific community, Vaiomer performs as well R&D on its own or in collaboration (Academic, clinical or industrial partners).

To support the development of our Service activity, we are looking for a Microbiome Scientist.
