Till­man Gern­gross leads a pack of biotech CEOs out the door; With eyes on pipeline ex­pan­sion, Po­sei­da woos a gene ther­a­py ex­ec from No­var­tis

As mar­ket volatil­i­ty sweeps through the land­scape, CEO changes are re­al­ly ramp­ing up, and top­ping the list is Till­man Gern­gross, a force in the an­ti­body space who hitched his wag­on to find­ing an­oth­er Covid-19 so­lu­tion by co-found­ing Ada­gio Ther­a­peu­tics. With big in­vestors back­ing him, the big dreams sput­tered when ADG20 proved less ef­fec­tive against Omi­cron in De­cem­ber. Gern­gross has now re­signed as CEO, hand­ing things over to COO David Her­ing on an in­ter­im ba­sis un­til a per­ma­nent suc­ces­sor is named. No stranger to the Covid vac­cine fight, Her­ing was poached from his role as glob­al mR­NA busi­ness lead of Pfiz­er in Ju­ly 2021.
