About us
Kathleen Smith (December 25, 1959 - February 16, 2011) was a skilled biologist, who dedicated her life to fighting cancer.

Léonidas Tsacas (Sept. 11 1923 - Oct. 25 2016) was an entomologist, traveling the world to catch Drosophila: fruit flies, an essential model organism for genetics research.

They were both intensely curious and liked to discuss various scientific topics as well as places in the world that they had visited – or wanted to.

The lives of Kathleen and Leonidas also shared a similar trajectory: they were both born abroad – Texas, USA for her, and the Greek island of Samos for him – but they both made their home in Paris in France.

Kiva is open to anyone wishing to join a friendly, international team.

Kathleen Smith (25 dec. 1959 - 16 fév. 2011) était une biologiste avertie qui a dédié sa vie à la lutte contre le cancer.
Léonidas Tsacas (Sept. 11 1923 - Oct. 25 2016) était un entomologiste qui parcourait le monde pour attraper des drosophiles (mouche du vinaigre), espèce modèle dans la recherche en génétique.
Tous les deux étaient d'une nature curieuse et aimaient discuter de divers sujets scientifiques mais aussi des endroits du monde qu'ils avaient visités et ceux où ils aimeraient aller.
Kathleen et Léonidas partage une trajectoire de vie similaire : les deux sont nés à l'étranger (au Texas, USA, pour Kathleen et sur l’île de Samos en Grèce pour Léonidas) et avaient choisi Paris en France pour vivre et/ou travailler.

Cette équipe est ouverte à tous ceux qui souhaite rejoindre une équipe amicale et internationale.

Bienvenue !
