Curis Announces Appointment Of Maurizio Voi, M.D. As Chief Medical And Chief Development Officer

Stocks in this article: CRIS

Curis, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRIS), a drug development company seeking to develop next generation targeted small molecule drug candidates for cancer treatment, today announced the appointment of Maurizio Voi, M.D., as Chief Medical and Chief Development Officer. Dr. Voi will be responsible for the Company's development, clinical trial and regulatory affairs operations, as well as biomarker and translational medicine activities.

Dr. Voi brings to Curis significant experience in targeted oncology drug development, most recently as Vice President of Clinical Development and Medical Affairs for the Oncology Business Unit at Pfizer’s Global Research and Development site in New York. Dr. Voi joined Pfizer in 2009 as Thoracic Tumor Strategy Team Leader for Oncology. In this role, he was responsible for developing strategic plans for assets within the Pfizer portfolio for the treatment of thoracic cancers, with a special emphasis on identifying patient populations most likely to respond to targeted agents by concurrently developing compounds and diagnostics, including XALKORI® (crizotinib), an ALK inhibitor for the treatment of ALK+ advanced non-small cell lung cancer that was granted FDA approval earlier this year.

"We look forward to benefitting from Maurizio’s depth and breadth of oncology product development experience as we seek to advance the development of our proprietary cancer drug candidates including CUDC-101, our first-in-class small molecule inhibitor of EGFR, Her2 and HDAC, CUDC-907, our dual PI3 kinase and HDAC inhibitor that is approaching clinical development, as well as our earlier-stage product candidates," said Dan Passeri, chief executive officer of Curis. "We anticipate that his in-depth experience with the development of several approved targeted cancer agents and understanding of the importance of translational medicine and molecular biology in current cancer treatments, combined with his U.S. and international experience, will greatly strengthen our management team and enhance our capabilities.”

"I am excited about working with Curis’ promising pipeline of cancer drug candidates," said Dr. Voi. "These novel oncology therapeutics are all based on Curis’ proven chemistry capabilities and expertise in cancer pathway network biology. I am looking forward to working with the Curis team to drive the development-stage assets in clinical testing as well as to working closely with the research team in its efforts to generate additional novel molecules for cancer."
