The ProQR family is growing fast and we spoke to the Chief Medical Officer Aniz Girach who joined ProQR in 2019. We asked him about his impression of the company after he joined, as well as the new developments he’s been working on.
There are currently around 160 people working at ProQR, but that wasn’t always the case. When Hee Lam Chan joined in 2013, she was only employee number six. As a result, she has seen the company grow and develop.
It has been roughly two years since David Rodman became the Executive Vice-President Research & Development at ProQR to apply his knowledge of study design and genetic diseases on our pipeline for genetic eye diseases.
ProQR has a promising pipeline in ophthalmology programs that is built on RNA technology. According to Dr. Peter Adamson, ProQR’s (former) Senior Vice President Ophthalmology Franchise, RNA may reach the ultimate goal: to make blind people see again.
