OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, UNITED STATES, May 23, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Moleculera Biosciences, Inc., a precision medicine company focused on identifying and directing treatment for immune-mediated CNS and cardiovascular disorders, has appointed long-time healthcare innovator and leader Vijay Aggarwal, Ph.D., as Chairman of its Board of Directors.

Dr. Aggarwal brings more than four decades of management experience in pharmaceutical services, diagnostics, and medical devices to the Board Chair position. He has held leadership and CEO positions for multiple companies since 1977.

“I’m thrilled that Dr. Aggarwal has accepted this position as Chair, particularly as we work to expand our board and corporate governance. His vast life sciences industry knowledge and experience will help us achieve our vision to change how medicine is practiced for those suffering from immune-mediated CNS and cardiovascular disorders,” said Craig Shimasaki, Ph.D., Moleculera’s co-founder and CEO. “Dr. Aggarwal leads a 5-member governing board that provides strategic guidance and enhanced governance and value creation that will greatly benefit our company.”
