NetScientific, the UK group which invests in biomedical and healthcare companies, has appointed François Martelet as CEO and board director. Dr Martelet, who will join the group on 8 June, was previously senior advisor to the CEO and interim senior vice president at biotech company Stallergenes. His 20-plus years’ of commercial experience in the biopharma industry will come in useful as a number of NetScientific’s portfolio companies start entering the commercialization phase. NetScientific has invested in several IVD companies, such as liquid biopsy technology developer Vortex Biosciences, liver disease diagnosis specialist Glycotest and ProAxsis, which is developing point of care tests for chronic conditions.
