resignation

The Chairman, President, and CEO resigned yesterday, but the firm did not provide the reasons for his exit.

Rosetta Genomics said that its chief commercialization officer would resign as the company settles into its latest change in corporate direction. But the company is not the only player in the RNAi/microRNA space to experience changes to its management lineup.

A member of Bruker's audit committee resigned earlier this month, leaving the firm short of the minimum number of committee members needed to satisfy a Nasdaq rule.
