The Critical Path Institute is searching for a new CEO. Recently, C-Path Institute Founder Raymond Woosley said he would step down as president/CEO of the institute in January 2012 or as soon as the position had been filled.

A search committee formed by C-Path's board of directors said this week that it is actively looking for Woosley's replacement. The new leader will be tasked with working collaboratively with regulatory and industry leaders to advance research and speed the introduction of innovative treatments to market.

C-Path is asking its collaborators and consortia members to recommend candidates for the position. People interested in applying for this position should send a letter of interest, CV, and three references to searchcommittee [at] c-path [.] org.
