Villa in the field of raw materials and glycochemistry. In 1994, he became an Assistant Professor at Laboratoire des Glucides, University of Picardie-Jules Verne, where he worked on amphiphilic glycomolecules with Professor Villa and in biological oligosaccharides synthesis with Professor Goethals. In 2000, he received his Habilitation degree and was promoted to a Professor in 2001 at Université d'Artois (IUT Béthune) at the Blood Brain Barrier Laboratory, where he worked on drug targeting with Professor Cecchelli.
