Adam Craig, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A., Executive Vice President, Development and Chief Medical Officer of Sunesis, commented, "Debbie and Gene have been integral members of Sunesis' management team, each contributing to the rigorous and successful conduct of our Phase 3 VALOR trial of vosaroxin in acute myeloid leukemia. As we look to full enrollment of VALOR in 2013, and anticipated unblinding of the trial in the first half of 2014, Regulatory Affairs and CMC will be critical components of our commercialization efforts.
