He direct the generation and validation of genetically rodent mutants for many academic laboratories, European consortia and pharmaceutical or biotech companies (more than 2,300 models achieved to date) and animal model microbiota research.
He leads R&D programs focusing on the development of new tools for genetic engineering and microbiota analyses, and is an expert in genetics and genome editing including the CRISPR/Cas9 system.
After a PhD in 2004, about bacterial mobile elements evolution, Guillaume Pavlovic worked at genOway, one of the leader company in the generation of customized and ready-to-use genetically modified mouse and rat models to develop the molecular biology activity. He joined ICS in 2007 as project manager in charge of the mouse model projects of its main industrial customers and was appointed at his present position one year later.
