En résumé

As Former Scientist in Physiology at INSERM, and Research Professor of Bioengineering at Penn State University. I have co-authored over 85 peer-reviewed publications and 13 issued US patents.

En tant qu'ancien Chercheur Scientifique à l'INSERM, et Professeur de Recherche en Génie Biologique et Médicale à Penn State University, je suis auteur de plus de 85 publications scientifiques et co-inventeur de 13 brevets Américains.

While I continue to be professionally interested in Science, I also enjoy tranlating and writing literay books, in my own way.

Tout en restant imprégné professionnellement par un esprit scientifique, je prends maintenant plaisir à traduire et à écrire, à ma guise, des livres littéraires.
