It is very rare to have such a diverse group of personalities and talents under one roof, completely dedicated to advancing development of therapies, for diseases which currently lack therapies” said Dr. Ichim. “I applaud Mr. Dixon for leading the Company to acquiring/developing a massive intellectual property portfolio, including the assets of OmniBiome, a fetal-material microbiome company founded by my late friend David Palella, which has been spun out as a TSOI subsidiary, retaining many of the original team. I plan to work tirelessly with the board to obtain the largest value possible from this promising intellectual property and team that has been assembled”.
