He recently organized a training program in Madison for EMD/Merck KGaA business development professionals from around the world in which Gov. Doyle participated.
* Dave Rozema, senior scientist, Roche Mirus. Dr. Rozema was the leader of the Mirus chemistry team that developed the small interfering RNA, or siRNA, nanotechnology called dynamic polyconjugates, which targets the delivery of siRNAs to tissues in the body. The technology was Mirus' primary focus during the past eight years and stimulated Roche's interest in acquiring it.
* Laura Douglass, president and chief executive, Next Generation Clinical Research. Ms. Douglass has more than 20 years of management experience in biopharmaceutical industry research and development, and operations. She founded contract research company Next Generation Clinical Research in 1999. The company provides clinical trial management services to small and mid-sized biotechnology companies.
