Jennifer commented on her appointment: “I am excited to be joining Clarity as Director of Quality and Regulatory Affairs at this exciting time when the Company is actively progressing its clinical trials in Australia and the U.S. with a number of important regulatory milestones down the track. I am looking forward to driving the regulatory process and developing a seamless regulatory framework that would leverage the existing achievements to progress the pipeline further.”
Clarity’s Executive Chairman Dr Alan Taylor said: “We are pleased to welcome Jennifer to our team and utilise her unique expertise in the biotechnology sector to strengthen Clarity’s regulatory function and ensure we keep achieving regulatory and clinical milestones with the ultimate goal of developing better treatments for children and adults with cancer. We are also excited to leverage Jennifer’s experience with the due diligence team of Viralytics during the Merck acquisition, which will be invaluable for preparing Clarity for any potential transactions that might arise in the future.”
