Previously, he held diverse positions up to Research Director - Pharmaceuticals at Gattefossé (1998-2018) where he was responsible for the development and characterization of new lipid-based excipients and drug delivery systems, particularly in the field of solubility and bioavailability enhancement for poorly water-soluble drugs and therapeutic peptides. He was also lecturer at Lyon University (CPE Lyon) from 2003 to 2019 where he taught formulation sciences for topical and transdermal dosage forms.
Vincent earned his Pharm.D. (1999) and Ph.D. (2004) from the University of Bourgogne (France). His doctoral work focused on pharmaceutical technologies such as tableting and hot-melt coating with lipid-based excipients. He received his HDR (Habilitation to Supervise Research, 2010) from the University of Lyon for his work centering on the characterization of physical-chemical properties of lipid-based systems and their behavior in gastro-intestinal fluids. Habilitation is the highest academic achievement possible in France - earned for superior independent scholarly accomplishments qualifying the holder to supervise doctoral candidates. Vincent has published 58 publications in peer-reviewed journals (GS h-index=25), 5 patent families, 3 book chapters, 72 meeting abstracts, and given 60 lectures as invited speaker on Lipid-based Systems.
