Dr. John Mendlein Joins aTyr Pharma as Executive Chairman
Date:5/25/2010

SAN DIEGO, May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- aTyr announced today that John Mendlein, Ph. D., has joined their Board of Directors as Executive Chairman. The translation of aTyr's newly found class of proteins, resectins, into medicines of the future will benefit from Dr. Mendlein's experience in biologics, partnerships, and product strategy. Resectins may serve as potential replacement protein therapeutics or as targets for antagonists relevant to inflammation, blood disorders, and metabolic disease. These naturally occurring human proteins possess novel biological activities distinct from currently known pharmaceutical targets and products.

"aTyr has recently uncovered novel proteins and pathways important to human physiology and disease. Dr. Mendlein's experience in translating game changing scientific discoveries into novel therapeutics will help us reach our goal – to build a successful, entrepreneurial enterprise from resectin based medicines offering breakthroughs in patient care" says Jeff Watkins, CEO of aTyr Pharma. Expanding on Dr. Mendlein's role, Watkins adds:  "John has an accomplished track record in biologics and building biotechs from a strong, novel scientific foundation. On multiple occasions he parlayed a company's science into meaningful partnerships and product opportunities while navigating the realities of running a biotech business."

Professor Paul Schimmel of The Scripps Research Institute and co-founder of aTyr Pharma adds, "Dr. Mendlein is the kind of visionary leader who recognizes how new biologies can open doors to whole new classes of therapeutics and targets. His passion for delivering new medicines to patients and his experience in making this happen helps actualize the po
