Biothera Pharmaceutical Barry Labinger

US biotech company Biothera Pharmaceutical has appointed Barry Labinger as its new chief executive officer.

Labinger has nearly three decades of pharmaceutical and biotech industry experience, with roles at Emergent BioSolutions, Human Genome Sciences, 3M Pharmaceuticals and Immunex.

His experience with oncology drug development will be particularly useful to the Minnesota-based firm, which is developing a novel cancer immunotherapy.

Richard Mueller, chairman of the board at Biothera Holding Corp, said: “Barry has strong leadership and management skills to take Biothera Pharmaceutical forward and realise the full potential of Imprime PGG, the company's first-in-class immune modulator, which we believe is the next step in immune oncology.

“We are delighted to have such an accomplished executive lead the company through the next phase of its development.”

Labinger most recently served as executive vice president and president, Biosciences Division, at Emergent BioSolutions Inc., where he was responsible for all aspects of product development, manufacturing, and commercialisation.
