Industry veteran and the founder of Celgene Dr Sol Barer has joined Inspire’s board of directors.
Dr Barer brings with him more than 30 years’ experience within the industry and will focus on addressing unmet need in the treatment of heart attack patients.
Asher Holzer, co-founder and President of Inspire, says it is an “honour to add such an accomplished and recognised biotechnology leader” to the company’s board.
It was in 1980 that Dr Barer formed Celgene. During his time with the company he occupied the positions of President, COO, CEO, Executive Chairman and Chairman before his retirement last month.
He also serves as a director at Amicus Therapeutics, Aegerion Pharmaceuticals and ContraFect Corporation.
