Our History

Key Milestones of our History

Biocellvia was created in 2011. Our history highlights a development dedicated to the improvement of pre-clinical research. With over a decade’s experience in industry and academia, Biocellvia is an uprising French startup whose proprietary automated image analysis has been rapidly adopted by the pharmaceutical industry. The milestone collaboration and co-publication with Boehringer Ingelheim further validated Biocellvia’s methodology in the pulmonary fibrosis murine model. Then, this intelligent image analysis has been developed for respiratory diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis, COPD, asthma.
