WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repligen Corporation today announced that it has elected to its Board of Directors John G. Cox, Executive Vice President of Pharmaceutical Operations & Technology for Biogen Idec Inc., a leading biopharmaceutical company. Mr. Cox has over 20 years of biopharmaceutical manufacturing experience and has supported the commercial launches of a number of major biologic drugs. He has a track record of implementing process changes to maximize manufacturing flexibility and throughput; this includes playing a leading role in creating the vision for Biogen Idec's "Future Factory," which aims to utilize disposable technology platforms. Separately, the Company announced that at year end, Earl Henry, M.D. will retire from the Repligen Board position that he has held since 2007.

"Mr. Cox's experience and his perspective as an end user of the products developed and marketed by Repligen make him ideally suited to provide strategic guidance to our Company, and we are pleased to welcome him as an important addition to our Board," said Walter C. Herlihy, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Repligen. "We also sincerely thank Dr. Henry for his many contributions to Repligen; in particular, his medical expertise was invaluable while the Company was active in the clinical development of therapeutics."

John Cox joined Biogen Idec in 2003 and has held multiple roles of increasing responsibility in the areas of manufacturing and technical operations. Mr. Cox has served as Executive Vice President of Pharmaceutical Operations & Technology since June 2010. He has also served as Senior Vice President of Technical Operations, Senior Vice President of Global Manufacturing, Vice President of Manufacturing, General Manager of Biogen Idec's operations in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, and Director of Manufacturing. From 2000 to 2003, Mr. Cox held a number of senior operational roles at Covance Biotech (a contract research organization acquired by Diosynth) where he worked in technology transfer, validation and purification. From 1993 to 2000, he focused on the same areas at American Home Products Corporation, now the Wyeth, LLC subsidiary of Pfizer Inc. Mr. Cox received a Bachelors of Science degree in biology from Arizona State University, a Masters of Science degree in cell biology from California State University and a Masters of Business Administration in finance degree from the University of Michigan.
