Amarillo Biosciences appoints Stephen Chen chair and CEO

He replaces Joseph Cummins, who will remain as the US biotech's chief operating officer

Amarillo Biosciences has selected Dr Stephen Chen, one of its directors, to take on the roles of CEO and chair.

Dr Chen takes over from Joseph Cummins, who will remain as the US biotech's president and chief operating officer.

Chen has been at Texas-based Amarillo since 1996, and has over 30 years' experience in the pharma and healthcare industry.

During this time he has held executive positions in R&D and business at several major pharma companies, including Burroughs Wellcome (now GlaxoSmithKline), Miles Pharmaceuticals (now Bayer), ICI America (now AstraZeneca), and Ciba-Geigy (now Novartis).

Since May 1992, he has been CEO of STC International, a US-based healthcare investment firm.

As CEO at Amarillo, Chen will lead operations at the company, which focus on research into the use of low-dose, oral interferon as a treatment for a variety of conditions, including influenza, hepatitis C, chronic cough and HIV-related infections.
