Ex-Pfizer executive joins Deciphera

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals hires ex-Pfizer executive Dr James A Bristol to its board of managers

US-based drug discovery company Deciphera Pharmaceuticals has hired ex-Pfizer executive Dr James A Bristol to its board of managers.

Bristol recently retired from Pfizer, where he had been senior vice-president for worldwide discovery research since 2003. He previously spent 20 years working for the Parke-Davis Pharmaceutical Research Division of Warner-Lambert, which he left as vice-president for discovery research.

Deciphera has two advanced programmes, which the firm says will enter human trials in 2008. One programme will investigate chronic myelogenous leukaemia, while the other will test treatments for melanomas, colon and other cancers.
