CBSET Inc. announced today that it has appointed Michael Naimark as director of business development, effective immediately. Most recently, he was employed by the Neural Stem Cell Institute (NSCI) as project manager overseeing the development of a cell-based therapy for macular degeneration under a 4-year award from the New York Stem Cell Foundation.
Previously, Naimark was co-owner of Care Research, a preclinical research organization where he provided operational, sales, and marketing oversight as Director of Surgical Models. Prior to founding Care Research, he helped launch Preclinical Research Services Inc., a preclinical research organization, and served as senior study director for several years.
“We are very pleased to have Michael join CBSET,” said Peter M. Markham, President and CEO. “His significant hands-on experience in managing complex preclinical studies in a variety of animal models puts him in a unique position to interact on CBSET’s behalf with existing and potential new sponsors about study goals and regulatory requirements. His industry experience and knowledge of cell-based and biologics therapies are a valuable addition to the CBSET team.”
Naimark earned a master of science degree in neurobiology and anatomy at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, and a bachelor of science degree in biology/biological sciences at the University of Mississippi.
