History and Development

François-André ALLAERT, public health specialist, pharmacist, lawyer and professor of biostatistics founded CEN Biotech 18 years ago. Born in the department of biostatistics of Dijon, it gradually became autonomous and this private company now holds a research centre of 800sqm in which work nearly thirty employees: doctors, pharmacists, biostatisticians, clinical research associates, data managers, data entry operators… CEN Biotech has also a research center dedicated exclusively to the evaluation of medical devices


Its added value lies in four areas to which it devotes its activities almost exclusively:

  • Clinical studies of medical devices in research center,  in private medical practices and in hospitals ;
  • Epidemiological registers, pharmaco-epidemiological and health economic studies;
  • Medico-marketing studies in pharmacies ;
  • Post-marketing study within the scope of the Risk Management Plans of prescription drugs or OTC drugs.

CEN Biotech provides its methodological expertise that is supported by 1300 national and international scientific communications and publications, and also by the 40 pharmaceutical or medical device manufacturers who regularly work with it.
