Baxter International has elected Dr Wayne T Hockmeyer to serve as a member of its board of directors from September 2007.

Hockmeyer founded MedImmune and served as its CEO and chairman from 1988 to 2000. MedImmune develops therapies for infectious disease, inflammatory disease and cancer and was recently acquired by AstraZeneca.

"Wayne is an exciting addition to our board of directors and we welcome the strong executive, scientific and operational experience he brings," said Robert L. Parkinson, Jr., Baxter's chairman and chief executive officer. "His extensive scientific and R&D expertise will be invaluable in helping Baxter achieve its innovation and growth objectives."

Before Medimmune, Hockmeyer was vice-president of laboratory research and product development at Praxis Biologics and served as chief of the department of immunology at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research.
