The creation of BioMeca was obvious, as the company was the meeting point of a multitude of factors. Even though we’ve had everything to create a strong solution that corresponds to the market’s expectations and we were perfectly in tune, it has been mostly our innovation’s attractivness that allows us to be more than just a fashion trend. This project fascinates me in all its facets, even accounting tasks !
Schedule changes every morning and requires a lot of energy and rhythm, but there is life in this shack. It’s in that boiling atmosphere that I am feeling good. BioMeca has a little bit of a Spanish hostel feel to it! Everyone in the team comes with their own baggage, their own vision of the labor. Young, older, tattooed, bearded… Here, we don’t mind as long as there are competences and this affinity that we are sharing on the fringes of science.
I’ve met BioMeca’s associates in an academic lab, before being recruited to support the development with my skills in optical microscopy. This kind of opportunity doesn’t pop up often at the end of a Master’s degree. We’ve got along so well that my answer was yes without the slightest hesitation. The subjects covered are so diverse, ranging from proteoliposomes to plants or skin explants. For a same biological sample, you can comeback to it whenever it’s necessary and have to completely change the scientific approach to reach your aim, but if biology were linear, you’d be bored.
My mission could be compared to opening a toolbox. Whether there’s a need for image analysis software, or a system to make measurements in atomic force microscopy, I give the boost that unlocks! At BioMeca, I can’t remember if we ever said we’re stuck. At the same time, we’re great at the Escape Game…
Although I knew nothing about the company’s technologies, I’ve joined BioMeca as an intern because I was very keen on developping cosmetics division. It was my personal feeling that guided this choice, but also that everything had to be done ! I was afraid to understand nothing, but I was so well supported until I mastered atomic force microscopy and became head of skin biology. This position has been created for me and that opens up so many perspectives to me!
Analyses, experiments, reports, technical meetings, everything is tailor-made… I am in a way the magician who has to constantly reinvent herself to create this “wow” effect for the client. At BioMeca, the spirit of innovation is very strong and the progress made is incredible. Everyone gives of themselves ! I can literally pull my hair out to test a new protocol !
After a year as consultant for BioMeca, and after a professional crush at the first meeting, I left a settled life in London to join the team and share my experience with this rough diamond ! On one hand, I hunt for prospects right up to congresses and scientific conferences. On the other hand, I transfer my skills and my experience, bringing business management and organisational tools. I’m also the one who shakes things up because it’s worth it !
BioMeca has science in its DNA : it comes at the right time, and has everything that the market needs. And above all, the founder’s enthusiasm, his responsiveness, his company’s vision, the objectives in healthcare field, and the growth of internal careers, etc… All of this never ceases to convince me !
