Dr. Walters brings more than 30 years' expertise of global regulatory strategy to Synairgen: from preclinical, to marketing authorisation, through to post-approval and commercialisation. Before joining Synairgen, Dr. Walters served as Global Regulatory Affairs Head (Research & Early Development) and Head of European Regulatory Affairs for Chugai Pharmaceuticals, where he led strategic and operational regulatory activities in Europe, Japan and the US. Prior to his time at Chugai, Dr. Walters held various senior regulatory and executive management and Board roles at several pharmaceutical and biotech companies, as well as commercial and clinical positions at Roche.

Gareth Walters, Ph.D., newly appointed Chief Regulatory Officer of Synairgen added : "I am thrilled to be joining Synairgen at such a pivotal moment for the Company. The anticipated conclusion of the Phase III trial in the coming months for SNG001 is a critical milestone for the Company in its goal of bringing interferon beta to hospitalised patients with COVID-19. I look forward to collaborating closely with the team and driving a global regulatory programme that helps deliver a therapy to patients that has the potential to reduce the burden on hospitals and healthcare systems."

About Synairgen

Synairgen is a UK-based respiratory company focused on drug discovery, development and commercialisation.
