AlgiPharma announces the appointment of Dr. Preston W. Campbell MD to the Board

We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Preston W. Campbell to the AlgiPharma Board as a non-executive Board Member. His experience and wisdom will be invaluable in guiding the AlgiPharma team and their alginate technology closer to market.

 

Dr. Preston Campbell served at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for 25 years where he focused on Cystic Fibrosis (CF) drug discovery and development. After a successful career as a Pediatric Pulmonologist at Vanderbilt University, he joined the Foundation as Executive Vice President of Medical Affairs in 1998. In 2015, he became the Foundation’s President and CEO. During his tenure at the Foundation, he oversaw the Foundation’s research initiatives and its collaborative drug discovery and development program. He has extensive experience with numerous companies helping them navigate discovery or clinical development efforts. These resulted in the approval of twelve CF therapies including four that treat the basic defect in CF. The most recent was Trikafta, which benefits 93 percent of people with the disease. The survival of people with CF during this time has increased dramatically. He retired in 2023 and remains involved with drug discovery and development as an independent consultant. He is a citizen of the United States of America.

AlgiPharma presented at Lipid Nanoparticle Summit in Boston

AlgiPharma attended the LNP Formulation & Process Development conference in Boston, MA (17-19th April). Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Philip Rye presented AlgiPharma’s novel alginate oligosaccharide technology for overcoming inhalation barriers for LNP delivered therapeutics. His presentation highlighted the benefits and challenges associated with the inhalation delivery route, and how AlgiPharma’s technology can mediate the effective translocation of LNP therapeutics across the mucosal barrier.

AlgiPharma’s alginate oligosaccharide technology combined with existing LNP formulations represent a novel way to safely circumvent mucosal barrier challenges and significantly increase efficiency of inhaled LNP therapeutics.
