Meet Our Team
Our young team was brought together through organizing a pharmacology related hackathon event. A few months afterwards, MicroPredictome was conceived and since then, we have been working tirelessly to bring our vision of a simple microbiome based diagnostic tool to the market.
In September 2019, we officially joined the Techstars Montreal AI Accelerator program.

Luca obtained his B.Sc. in Pharmacology from McGill University in May 2019. His research focused on the development of viral techniques to understand the factors involved in heart disease. He is currently fully dedicated to MicroPredictome as its CEO and has pitched at numerous competitions including the McGill Dobson Cup (2019), BDO Montreal Pitch Day (2019) and Pitch@Palace Canada 1.0 On Tour Quebec (2019).
Richard obtained his B.Sc. in Pharmacology with a minor concentration in computer science from McGill University in May 2019. His research focused heavily on the microbiome, namely on the effects and uptake of glycans on the gut microbiota. He has also built a GITbox, a system that mimics the conditions bacteria experience in the gastro-intestinal tract.
Reilly obtained his Honours B.Sc. in Pharmacology from McGill University in May 2019, earning the Dean’s Convocation Prize upon graduation. His research focused on the characterization of antibodies for cancer therapy. His current research focuses on favoring the response of cancer patients to immunotherapy by altering the microbiome.
Alexis obtained his Honours B.Sc. in Pharmacology from McGill University in May 2019. He has received multiple scholarships throughout is undergraduate degree. Much of his work has been in bioinformatics, which now focuses on the microbiome. At Genome Quebec, he has worked with some of Canada’s best bioinformaticians on the creation of data analysis pipelines. He is also the founder and president of Student Pharma, a non-profit group that teaches bioinformatics and chemoinformatics to students.
