Café Croissants with Levoya - An Animal Health Research Project to Accelerate Your Company’s Growth in Human Health

An Animal Health Research Project to Accelerate Your Company’s Growth in Human Health


Have you ever considered transferring your human health research project to animal health? Proof of concept can be obtained faster in animal health than in human health; this sector also produces promising results and strong arguments to convince investors of your innovation’s potential.


On April 27, starting at 8:15 a.m., the LEVOYA team will explain more about the animal health industry. Learn about its scope and structure, its main innovation drivers, potential approaches, and some keys to succeeding in it.


LEVOYA is a team of animal health experts who have helped many companies of all sizes overcome the challenges associated with this type of research. Their experience and network of trusted animal health partners can help to energize your project and help it to reach its full potential.


One of the companies that LEVOYA has advised is Angany, a French/Canadian company which developed a new approach that has strong potential for treating allergies. It recently signed an agreement with Nextmune (a member of Vimian, a Swedish group of companies) to develop vaccines against allergic and atopic dermatitis in dogs. Dr. Guy Tropper, Angany’s Senior Vice-President, will speak about his experiences during this journey.
