I look forward to watching Tarsus advance TP-03 into commercialization, if approved, to help as many patients as possible and am confident that this is just the beginning of a remarkable future for the Company.” “It has been the opportunity of a lifetime to partner with Michael, both personally and professionally, including his vision and leadership in building Tarsus to solve complex problems and improve the lives of patients. I can’t wait to see what he creates and the impact he has in his next roles,” said Bobak Azamian, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Tarsus. “I am delighted and grateful for Wendy to plan to step into the Lead Independent Director role, and I look forward to continuing to benefit from her deep knowledge and experience working with companies at our stage.” “I’m pleased to move into this important role on the Tarsus board and am excited to partner more closely with the other board members and the Tarsus management team as the company moves into a new chapter of development and growth,” said Ms. Yarno. “I am hopeful I can continue to provide meaningful support and leadership to the company as it progresses toward commercialization and advances its pipeline.” Advertisement Related Topics:Tarsus Pharmaceuticals click to Comment(Comment) Up Next CooperVision Endowed Faculty Scholar in Myopia Control and Contact Lenses Announced at the UAB School of Optometry Don't Miss Innovative Eyewear Announces Appointment of Sr. Vice President, Sales and Marketing and VP of Global Optical Sales and Marketing SPONSORED VIDEO Turn Patients Into Loyal Eyewear Shoppers 80% of patients are browsing eyewear online, are you influencing patients online before your competition?
