Tuesday, November 5, one Medicago’s employee has been named as part of CASCON x Evoke Canada’s Tech Titans: Top 19 of 2019. This prestigious event, this year held at the Hilton Toronto/Markham Conference Centre, recognize and celebrate Canada’s top technology executives who have either disrupted an industry through the use of technology, led a digital transformation or used technology in innovative ways to enhance their businesses value. That employee would be our very own: Marc-André D’Aoust!

As Vice-President Research & Innovation, Marc-André advances Medicago’s technological vision and is responsible for the discovery, the development and the protection of the technological assets of the company. Precisely he has led the development of the plant-based Proficia® technology, the virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine technology and the VLPExpress® high-throughput discovery platform of the company. He is co-inventor on more than 700 patents and patent applications related to the platform or the products of the company.

“I feel honored and gratified to receive such external recognition for the work I am doing” said Marc-Andre. And he must be: Marc-Andre has been named, among several candidates, by a Judging Panel consisting of senior technology executives from some of the world’s largest organizations.

The full list of winners has been posted here.

Medicago is very proud of this achievement and of all the good work that Marc-André has done. Join us in congratulating him warmly!
