Dr. Tari was a key member of the research team that performed the basic research and preclinical development of the liposomal delivery technology that Bio-Path has licensed from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and is at the core of the Company’s research and development efforts. In particular, Dr. Tari was the lead researcher who developed the Company’s lead product candidate Liposomal Grb-2 (BP-100-1.01) that is currently in a Phase I clinical trial in blood cancers. Dr. Tari has authored or co-authored numerous articles in leading scientific journals, including several on the research done in Liposomal Grb-2.
