Mathieu has been the CEO and co-founder of Sim&Cure since 2014. He focuses his activity on strategic vision and business development.

Mathieu initially had a scientific background through his PhD in biomechanics on the risk of rupture of cerebral aneurysms and his position as R&D engineer at Philips.

Sim&Cure is his first entrepreneurial adventure where he placed, with Vincent the other co-founder, the human being at the center of his project to achieve the set objectives: Secure treatment.

Apart from Sim&Cure Mathieu is the happy dad of 2 children which almost another full time job! He is also passionate about sports and basketball more particularly where he was a high level athlete for 14 years.

PhD in applied mathematics, Christophe worked in the scientific and clinical areas for 6 years before Sim&Cure. International profile, author of more than 25 publications, Christophe has collaborated with multiple institutes and hospitals on various research subjects such as medical imaging, physiology, and numerical simulation in the cardiac and neurovascular fields.

Christophe joined Sim&Cure at its beginning and is now the privileged interface between the CEO and the different teams of the company. Being now a hybrid profile, he takes part among other things in the definition of Sim&Cure’s strategy and its daily application, manages the teams, leads the innovation, research, and development directions, and is in contact with the commercial and medical partners of Sim&Cure.

With a Master's degree in Project Management and Innovation in Biotechnology, Lucile specializes in the field of medical devices and more precisely in its regulatory context. After starting at Sim&Cure as an intern, Lucile became a regulatory affairs engineer within the start-up.

Through a wide variety of assignments, she interacts with all of the start-up's departments in order to ensure that the regulations are applied. Lucile brings her contribution and her expertise in the different phases of product life, whether during development, marketing or even distribution. It is in this role at the interface between the different departments that she learns and develops her position on a daily basis.

Graduated from a master's degree in information processing research specializing in image and living, Sonia then completed a PhD in medical imaging processing at the University of Toulouse. During her thesis, she worked on the application of machine learning techniques, in particular methods based on deep learning to automate the tasks of segmentation and classification of medical images.

This experience made her want to continue in the health sector and she thus integrated Sim&Cure as Data Scientist in July 2020. Her role consists in analyzing, proposing and implementing an architecture and solutions adapted to the different needs of research projects. She also participates in the implementation of a number of basic tools (preprocessing, visualization, annotation, etc.) to facilitate the exploitation and analysis of heterogeneous medical data in order to provide the best treatment to patients.

Sonia fits perfectly into the multidisciplinary culture of Sim&Cure, where a great diversity of profiles coexist in the service of medical research.

With a bac + 2 background (BTS IRIS: IT, Network and System Information), he has learned a lot from his various experiences over the past 12 years, to get to a position that fully suits him.

He arrived at Sim&Cure a year and a half ago as a C ++ / Qt dev, then as the start-up evolved, he moved into the position of software manager since July 2020. At the head of a team of 4 developers who, with the collaboration of other divisions (such as R&D, product life or marketing), continually improves the Sim & Size software and other products.

Different challenges are looming on the horizon and we can't wait to meet them!

Hobby level, he already has his two children to take care of :) Then he practices badminton (like many people at Sim & Cure elsewhere!).
