Roche's Louis Renzetti joins PPD in senior lab role

Takes up role as VP of strategic laboratory operations at the CRO

The former global head of Roche's RNA therapeutics division Louis Renzetti has moved to contract research organisation (CRO) PPD to take up the role of VP of strategic laboratory operations.

Renzetti has more than 20 years' experience in drug discovery, spending more than half of them with Roche where he held a series of senior leadership positions.

As global head of the pharma company's RNA therapeutics division Renzetti led the company's efforts to advance a revolutionary therapeutic platform to treat severe diseases such as cancer.

PPD's executive vice president of global lab services and chief scientific officer Lee Babiss said: "Lou brings strong pharmaceutical expertise to help us build and strengthen our strategic lab partnerships with pharma, biotech, academia and government clients.

"His leadership will be instrumental as we continue implementing innovative new strategies to integrate our laboratory and phase I services with our phase II-IV services to provide clients with end-to-end, value-chain capabilities."

Renzetti completed postdoctoral training in pharmacology at ICI Pharmaceuticals, now part of AstraZeneca, and his subsequent drug discovery work has included stints as a pharmacologist, drug development specialist and therapeutic area leader.
