Cory has been very helpful during the last year as a board member and I am excited that he will be taking a more active role. Also, given that Cory worked directly with GeminiBio’s CEO, Brian Parker, while at Thermo Fisher, this was a natural fit.”
Cory Stevenson, Executive Chairman of GeminiBio added, “I am delighted to expand my role at GeminiBio after working closely with Brian and the rest of the team since I joined the Board.
