Together, we will pioneer groundbreaking solutions, shaping the future of biotechnology."

“Today we are witnessing the convergence of information technology, and biotechnology – I believe Owkin is well positioned to become a leader in the application of artificial intelligence to accelerate the development of diagnostics and precision medicine,” said Jean-Jacques Bienaimé. “I've always been interested in being involved in companies that had breakthrough technology that could make a significant difference in the case of healthcare, in patients' lives, and I look forward to continuing being involved in Owkin’s mission of finding the right treatment for every patient.”

Before joining BioMarin, Mr. Bienaimé spent years in similar executive roles at other pharmaceutical and biotech companies and currently serves on the board of directors for Incyte, Immunome and Biotechnology Industry Organization. Mr. Bienaimé studied economics at the Ecole de Commerce de Paris and received an M.B.A from the University of Pennsylvania.

Mr. Bienaimé is joining a board of directors led by experienced figures from the biopharmaceutical industry and leading venture capital funds.
