Arrowhead scientific advisory board chair, Dr. Mauro Ferrari, named President and CEO of Houston's Methodist Hospital Research Institute

Pasadena, CA | Posted on August 17th, 2010

The Institute, based in Houston, Texas, was formed in 2004 to rapidly and efficiently translate discoveries made in the laboratory and the clinic into new diagnostics, therapies, and treatments. Important advances in biomedical sciences and healthcare are made by collaborative, interdisciplinary teams of individuals with diverse scientific backgrounds and training. TMHRI was created to provide the infrastructure and support for these endeavors, and to house the technology and resources needed to make innovative breakthroughs in important areas of human disease.

Dr. Ferrari is the also co-founder and a member of the Board of Directors of Leonardo Biosystems, a minority investment of Arrowhead Research.

"We congratulate Mauro on this prestigious appointment," said Dr. Christopher Anzalone, Arrowhead's CEO. "At Arrowhead, we count on Mauro's vision and passion for bridging the gap between 21st century science and real-life medical problems. Mauro's visionary leadership will surely be of great benefit in implementing TMHRI's mission."

Dr. Ferrari is the president of the Alliance for NanoHealth, and he serves as professor of experimental therapeutics at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, and professor of bioengineering at Rice University. He is a fellow of the American Academy for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Most recently, Dr. Ferrari served as chair of the Department of Nanomedicine and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Prior to joining the faculty of the University of Texas, Dr. Ferrari was a tenured professor at both Ohio State University and the University of California at Berkeley with primary research interests in biomedical engineering.

He has over 200 published works and has been invited to speak on biomedical nanotechnology and other topics worldwide.
