Before that, he worked as Global Programme Director, establishing new external collaborations, and as Director in Biological Chemistry, leading research into novel pharmacological targets. His scientific experience covers oncology, immunology and infection.
Karl was Assistant Professor in Chemistry at Leiden University, The Netherlands, and holds a PhD in Chemistry from Utrecht University, and an MSc in Biochemistry from Helsinki University, Finland.
Neil Murray, Chief Executive of Redx, commented:
On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Phil for his significant contribution to Redx and particularly for his work during the Company’s IPO. We wish him well in his future endeavours.
I am very pleased to welcome Karl Hård to Redx as Head of Investor Relations. His long career at AstraZeneca, which encompassed both scientific research and investor relations, means that he will be a valuable addition to the management team. We look forward to working with him as we drive forward Redx’s continuing development.
