Dr. Trevejo’s leadership will be highly valued in the continued advancement of TP-03, the Tarsus pipeline programs in eye care, dermatology and infectious diseases, and pipeline expansion opportunities.

“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Trevejo to the Tarsus team at this key point in the company’s growth, as we complete the second pivotal clinical trial for our lead investigational product, TP-03, for the treatment of Demodex blepharitis, and if results are positive, expect to submit a New Drug Application (NDA) later this year,” said Bobak Azamian, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Tarsus Pharmaceuticals. “Dr. Trevejo’s leadership in drug development and clinical trials will be instrumental in advancing TP-03 towards FDA approval as well as expanding our broader pipeline.
