I am excited to join Tim and our talented team as we unleash the power of immune-response testing to create a new class of breakthrough diagnostics,” said Boyle.
“The addition of Amy to the executive team will also permit Inflammatix Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer Jonathan Romanowsky to grow the company’s business development and reimbursement efforts. Inflammatix looks forward to successfully commercializing a broad product pipeline and achieving our revenue targets,” said Sweeney.
