ARCA biopharma, Inc. (Nasdaq:ABIO), a biopharmaceutical company developing genetically-targeted therapies for cardiovascular diseases, today announced that Robert E. Conway, has been appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors. He will serve on the Audit and Compensation Committees of the Board of Directors.

Mr. Conway has over 30 years of executive leadership experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. From 1999 to 2012, he served as the Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board of Directors of Array BioPharma, a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of targeted small molecule drugs to treat patients afflicted with cancer and inflammatory diseases. Prior to joining Array, Mr. Conway was the Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of Hill Top Research, Inc., from 1996 to 1999. There he managed a network of company-owned research centers, conducting clinical trials for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. From 1979 until 1996, Mr. Conway held various executive positions with Corning, Inc., including Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Corning Hazleton, Inc., a contract research organization. Mr. Conway serves as the Chairman of Wall Family Enterprise, a leading library and education supplies company. He is on the Board of Directors of PRA International, Inc. and eResearch Technology, Inc. In addition, Mr. Conway is a member of the Strategic Advisory Committee of Genstar Capital, LLC.

“We are honored to have Bob join the ARCA Board of Directors,” said Dr. Michael R. Bristow, President and Chief Executive Officer of ARCA. “With his significant experience in leading both drug development efforts and companies in the biopharmaceutical sector, Bob will be a valuable addition to the ARCA Board as we continue the development of Gencaro and look to deliver value to our stockholders.”

“I am delighted to join the Board of ARCA at this important point in its development, both for the company and for the cardiology patients we hope to serve,” said Mr. Conway. “We believe there is an unmet medical need for new atrial fibrillation treatments. The GENETIC-AF trial, conducted with the collaboration of Medtronic, will hopefully provide important new data for the atrial fibrillation community.”
