Organ-on-a-chip Company (OOC) CN Bio has appointed a new Chief Business Officer as part of its commercial business strategy.
The company has appointed Dr Paul Brooks to the role, who will be responsible for leading the expansion of its global commercial organisation.
Dr Brooks has over 25 years of experience in the life science industry, and has helped shape businesses and lead high-performance research, product development, marketing, and sales teams to develop and commercialise new biotechnology technologies. He joins CN Bio from Horizon Discovery, a PerkinElmer Company, where he led the strategic and operational transformation of its business units as Head of Business Operations & Managing Director, driving revenue growth across its service, product, and licensing businesses.
Dr David Hughes, Chief Executive Officer, CN Bio, said: “Paul not only has experience across a range of large, globally-recognised life sciences businesses, but also driving growth within smaller teams. He has a very strong track record and is well placed to help us grow commercially, moving us forward with our organisational strategy and goals. We are proud to have him joining the team and look forward to working together, enabling us to drive innovation in the sector by bringing more products to market.”
Dr Paul Brooks, Chief Business Officer, CN Bio, commented: “The potential within the Organ-on-a-Chip space to revolutionise drug discovery is remarkable. CN Bio is demonstrating these possibilities with its next-generation PhysioMimix microphysiological technology, not only to accelerate the accurate and reliable development of new therapeutics, but also critically reducing researchers’ dependence on animal models. It’s an exciting time to be joining CN Bio at an important inflection point in its history, and I’m eager to work alongside the team to help realise this potential.”
