Solon, OH: CMC Pharmaceuticals, a provider of drug product development services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, announces the formation of an Advisory Board. The group of distinguished leaders will advise CMC Pharma on continued growth with a focus on cutting-edge science, business strategy, marketing, and risk reduction. The Members possess decades of experience in government, commercial, and academic research and development with demonstrated success including several biotech start-ups.
Board Members include Drs. John Patton, Mark Prausnitz, W. Mark Saltzman, Arthur Tipton, and Larry Zeitlin. Collectively, they have published hundreds of scientific articles, are tenured at some of the country’s top universities, started up and led established biotech and pharma companies, and have served on various fellowships and boards.
The Board held its first meeting virtually on January 24, 2022. Chairman, Dr. Arthur Tipton, has worked as an advisor to CMC Pharma for several years and expressed excitement for future engagements. “This group includes some of the most accomplished leaders in the drug development space. We look forward to celebrating wins with CMC Pharma and offering valuable strategic input to help them better serve their clients,” said Dr. Tipton.
The team at CMC Pharma, led by owner and co-founder, Dr. Mike Radomsky, helps clients with their drug product development efforts, ranging from early-stage formulation and analytical methods work to commercial-stage support.
At the inaugural meeting, Dr. Radomsky presented the 3-year growth plan and projections for expansion of drug development services, revenue, and employee headcount. With the Advisory Board’s help, CMC Pharma will expand the company’s reach while targeting specific opportunities for growth in the CDMO space. “The team at CMC Pharma has many decades of technical drug development experience, fast response times, and current capacity to begin new projects,” explained Dr. Radomsky. “The formation of an Advisory Board allows us to network and strategize with academics and industry leaders, navigating new routes for expansion while continuing to use our strengths to our advantage.”
