Mor­phoSys’ chief sci­en­tist hits the ex­it, trig­ger­ing R&D re­or­ga­ni­za­tion as they shift fo­cus to US in an­tic­i­pa­tion of loom­ing FDA ap­proval

Just a few days af­ter open­ing up its new US head­quar­ters on Boston har­bor in prep for what they be­lieve is the im­mi­nent ap­proval of a new CAR-T ri­val, Mor­phoSys says that its top sci­en­tist is step­ping down and they’re re­or­ga­niz­ing R&D un­der de­vel­op­ment chief Malte Pe­ters.

We don’t know the de­tails about what’s up, aside from the fact that they said in an an­nounce­ment that 17-year com­pa­ny vet­er­an Markus En­zel­berg­er is leav­ing his job as chief sci­en­tif­ic of­fi­cer to ex­plore new op­por­tu­ni­ties. And with his de­par­ture, they will be “in­te­grat­ing” re­search in­to the de­vel­op­ment op­er­a­tion.
