Melanie Halaoui, from the Lyon School of Medicine defended her thesis and worked in collaboration with Dr Anna Bodo and Dr Sandy Randriabolona on the beneficial effects of spirulina produced in our organisation. All this work leads to three more medicine theses.
Mathieu Raad, another Lyon member of the organisation, is working at the moment on his thesis and it will be on Bacteriology in Madagascar.

It will be done in partnership with the Lyon Laennec Centre and their Old Students Organisation.
