Date:8/26/2020

Elgia Therapeutics, a biotechnology company pursuing novel approaches for the treatment of chronic inflammatory and fibrotic diseases, today announced that Dr. Stacie Canan has joined the company as its Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Drug Discovery.

Dr. Canan previously served as Executive Director of Global Health at Bristol Myers Squibb (formerly Celgene), and was responsible for Discovery and Development activities on multiple international global health programs for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). At Celgene, Stacie also served as Executive Director of Chemistry (2007-2012), responsible for chemistry strategy and implementation across the portfolio, including clinical candidate nominations. Stacie has 28 years of experience in the biopharma and pharmaceutical industry, including scientific and leaderships roles at Ligand, Agouron, and Pfizer, with broad expertise that includes project leadership, diverse therapeutic area experience (inflammation/fibrosis, oncology, HIV, HCV, sexual health, ophthalmology and neglected diseases), and success with fragment, structural, phenotypic and property based drug discovery approaches. During her tenure at Agouron, as a member of the discovery team, Stacie co-invented rucaparib (Rubraca®), which is an oral small molecule inhibitor of PARP-1, -2, -3 for treatment of ovarian, fallopian tube, primary peritoneal and mCRP cancers with BRCA mutations.

“We are thrilled to welcome Stacie to our management team,” said Dr. Alan Saltiel, Co-Founder and CEO of Elgia Therapeutics. “Her expertise in drug discovery and deep experience in both the biotech and pharmaceutical industry will be immediately impactful to Elgia’s goal of advancing first-in-class anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotics into the clinic.”

Dr. Canan received her BS from Pennsylvania State University, MS from University of Illinois and PhD from University of California, Irvine.
