Dr Neil Miller, CSO of Auspherix, said: “With his hands on clinical experience, and a depth of knowledge gained during his careers in the anti-infectives space, William’s input and guidance will make an invaluable addition to the insight and steer we get from our SAB as we progress our novel anti-bacterial drug candidates through pre-clinical development towards our first-in-human clinical trial.”
