Monday, July 14, 2014

Merck‘s biopharmaceutical division has appointed Luciano Rossetti, M.D., executive vice president and global head of R&D as of July 21.

Previously, Rossetti was senior vice president late stage development at Merck Sharp & Dohme. He was responsible for the entire clinical development from phase II to phase V across all therapeutic areas. He played a key role in shaping and implementing the development strategy of several potential breakthrough compounds such as anti PD-1.
