Scor­pi­on snags a Sanofi vet to lead the way to the clin­ic; All eyes on eli-cel as blue­bird seeks a fi­nance leader — again

Up­on tak­ing the helm at pre­ci­sion on­col­o­gy-fo­cused Scor­pi­on Ther­a­peu­tics last sum­mer, Ax­el Hoos told End­points News that he had a clear vi­sion of the type of lead­ers he want­ed to hire.

It ap­pears that for­mer Sanofi project head Michael Stre­it, one of Hoos’ old col­leagues from GSK, fits the bill.

Stre­it has been tapped to lead Scor­pi­on’s first two ex­per­i­men­tal drugs in­to the clin­ic, the com­pa­ny an­nounced on Mon­day. When Hoos ap­proached him about the open CMO po­si­tion, Stre­it said he was “keen about the op­por­tu­ni­ty” to work to­geth­er again.
