CEO's Summary

John Lambert

“Mark has been a highly valued advisor to Amplia since its inception and it is exciting to be at a stage where we can finally bring him on board as Chief Scientific Officer. With the first clinical trial of AMP945 about to commence and with a comprehensive program of non-clinical studies to manage, we are delighted that Mark has agreed to formally join the Amplia team at this time. Further, it is increasingly clear from the published literature that FAK is continuing to gain traction as an important drug target for a number of diseases. Having Mark’s input in identifying and developing the most attractive opportunities for Amplia’s drugs, from both a clinical and commercial perspective, will be invaluable."
