We believe that Jaye's molecular oncology knowledge, combined with broad experience across clinical oncology development, will tremendously enhance our internal capabilities as we seek to effectively and efficiently develop our clinical programs, including CUDC-427, our IAP antagonist, and CUDC-907, our dual-acting PI3K and HDAC inhibitor. Moreover, Tania's expertise in product leadership will help shape our strategy as we drive our development programs into multiple near-term clinical trial launches."
