Annette graduated in Pharmacology from Bath University UK and also holds a series of American Management Diplomas.

She has had a celebrated 30-year career in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry, predominantly at GlaxoSmithKline, where she has worked on a variety of R&D and commercial functions.

Ms Clancy was Head of Transactions and Alliance Management at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) where she was responsible for executing innovative deals ranging from early drug discovery partnerships, to global commercial alliances and Mergers and Acquisitions.

Since her retirement from GSK in 2008, Ms Clancy has been appointed as Non-Executive Board Director to Silence Therapies plc. (2008-2012) and Clavis Pharma in Norway (2008 on going). Ms Clancy also currently serves as Senior European Advisor to the biopharmaceutical team of Frazier Healthcare Ventures, for whom she provides strategic advice on both new and existing investments.

As a Non-Executive Board Member to Genable Technologies Ltd., Ms Clancy will also provide strategic consultancy advice to the company.

Ms Clancy said, “This is a very exciting time for the company and I am looking forward to working with the Genable Technologies team as they continue to make advances for suffers of genetic diseases.”

Welcoming Ms Clancy’s appointment, Genable’s outgoing Chairman Dr John Monahan said, “Annette has extensive and impressive experience in this industry and we are delighted that she will bring some of that experience to Genable Technologies as Chairman. We have seen significant advances in our products and research recently and we are certain that Annette’s proficiency and skill will enhance the expertise already within the company.”  The company are also delighted to note Dr Monahan will remain on the Genable Board as a Non-Executive Director.

Genable Technologies Ltd gene therapy product, GT038, has recently been granted Orphan Drug Designation by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA for the treatment of Retinitis Pigmentosa, complimenting the previous orphan drug designation granted by the European Commission. This is a significant milestone as it provides Genable Technologies with seven years market exclusivity once GT308 has secured regulatory approval.

GT038 is an adeno-associated viral vector containing DNA encoding an RNAi targeting rhodopsin in combination with an adeno-associated viral vector containing a rhodopsin gene for the treatment of rhodopsin-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa. The product is currently undergoing formal pre-clinical assessments prior to commencing clinical studies in patients.
