Prosensa has appointed industry leader and former Genzyme CEO, Mr. Henri Termeer as Strategic Advisor. His role at Prosensa will be to provide input on the company’s corporate strategy and growth plans.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr. Termeer said: “Prosensa has the key ingredients of a successful company in the rare disease community: breakthrough science, a highly motivated workforce and a passionate commitment to improving the lives of patients. I am very much looking forward to working with the Prosensa team.”

Prosensa’s CEO, Hans Schikan, commented: “We are very pleased that Henri is joining the team as a Strategic Advisor. Under his leadership, Genzyme became a world-leading biotech company and a pioneer in rare diseases and orphan drugs. His expertise will be invaluable to use as we drive our products and technology forward.”
