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…


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

  • Epidemiological registers, pharmaco-epidemiological and health economic studies;
  • 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.
