EMA board selects new leader

The European Medicines Agency's management board has nominated Guido Rasi as executive director

The European Medicines Agency's (EMA) management board has nominated Guido Rasi as new executive director.

The executive director-designate has been invited to a hearing in front of the European Parliament Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety on July 13, 2011. The board will officially appoint the new executive director following his hearing and a positive response from the European Parliament.

Rasi has been director general of the Italian Medicines Agency since 2008, and member of the EMA's management board since 2010.

Previously he worked in research at the Institute for Experimental Medicine of the National Research Council in Rome, directing the molecular medicine section from 2002 to 2005 and the Tor Vegata section from 2005 to 2008.

Andreas Pott will continue his role as acting executive director until Guido Rasi takes office.
