I have a long-term interest in inflammation in cardiovascular diseases, and in novel therapies to address this and other diseases, including cancer. Targeting pro-inflammatory cytokines offers considerable promise, and I look forward to helping XBiotech translate advances in inflammation biology to the clinic.
Dr. Libby is at the forefront of inflammation biology and cardiovascular medicine. He has played leading roles in elucidating mechanisms behind some of the most prominent drugs in medicine. Dr. Libby will bring important perspective to XBiotech's board.
