"We welcome Michael as an instrumental addition to our Supervisory Board," said Hans Schikan, Prosensa's CEO.  "Michael's extensive financial and transactional expertise will support the company significantly in our efforts to bring much-needed, life-saving treatments for rare genetic diseases to patients. His long-term tenure at Genzyme, one of the most successful companies in the rare disease space, will be invaluable as we continue developing therapies for boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and building our company."
