Gene Logic Announces Integration of Therimmune; VP to Step Down

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) Oct. 1 - Gene Logic said today that it has reorganized its information services and contract study services business following its acquisition, last April of TherImmune Research.

 

As part of the reorganization, the company said it will no longer use the TherImmune Research Corporation name,a nd that all service offerings to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies will be marketed under the Gene Logic name.

 

As part of this integration, Steve Trevisan, executive vice president and a director of the company, will step down, but will continue "in an advisory capacity" until the end of the year.

 

Trevisan was formerly president and CEO of TherImmune Research, and came on board at Gene Logic when the company  acquired TherImmune in April of this year.
