I also sensed the strong commitment to innovation that has led to both the development of Domainex’s proprietary platforms, such as Combinatorial Domain Hunting, as well as several candidate drugs. I am delighted to be joining at such a dynamic and exciting time in the company’s development, and look forward to bringing my own experience to help further advance the business.”

“I am delighted to welcome Bodo to Domainex,” commented Dr Tom Mander, COO of the company. “His successful track record of identifying and forging strategic client collaborations, coupled with his experience of working in the fields of assay development, protein production, in vitro and in vivo pharmacology, compound profiling, screening and ADME, make him the ideal addition to our business development team. Bodo will play a strategic role, building on our relationships with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies across Europe and, via our services and expertise, help them advance their programmes towards development.”
