Kleinostheim, Germany; Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA July 2016 – As of July 1, 2016 Dr. Gregor Thomas has been appointed as new Medical Director at curasan AG.
Dr. Thomas follows Dr. Wolf-Dietrich Hübner who will retire at the end of this year. Dr. Hübner has successfully managed his department in the leading position as a Medical Director over 12 years and has built up a competent team within this time. In the future Dr. Hübner will continue to lend his support to curasan as an advisor.
Dr. Thomas is an experienced executive who has held previous posts as a medical practitioner in leading industries focusing on clinical research and product development. In addition, Dr. Thomas brings valuable skills gained during his longtime experience as both orthopedic, oral surgeon and reconstructive dentistry specialties.
“Currently curasan is servicing two separate regenerative medicine fields – orthopaedics and dentistry. With Dr. Thomas we will benefit from his orthopedic and dental involvement and utilize his experiences to further both segments of our business worldwide.” Michael Schlenk, CEO of curasan AG, comments with pleasure. “Dr. Thomas earned his Ph.D in hip arthroplasty and therefore has extensive knowledge in orthopaedics which is a prerequisite for our increased focus on this segment in the future.”
Dr. Thomas will lead the medical affairs, clinical research, regulatory affairs and quality systems departments and is now part of curasan’s senior management team.
