Genaissance Pharmaceuticals CSO Gualberto Ruano will resign from the company on Aug. 31. Ruano, who was ousted from the chief executive’s slot one year ago, will also leave Genaissance’s board of directors. Richard Judson will replace him as CSO.
Judson, 44, joined Genaissance in 1999. Since August 2000 he has served as senior vice president of medical affairs and informatics, and had been responsible for leading the development of the company’s HAP Technology.
He came to Genaissance from CuraGen, where he managed the development of software for protein-protein interactions and DNA-sequence analysis.
