This recognition underscores both MBX-2982's potential to become an important new therapy for type 2 diabetes, and MBX-8025's potential in the treatment of dyslipidemia," said Harold Van Wart, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Metabolex.

The metabolic selection committee was led by Marc Wortman, contributing writer to Windhover's IN VIVO and Start-Up, and Harris Kaplan, President & CEO, and Jun Huangpu, Managing Director, of Healogix, a leading business development strategy consulting firm. The cardiovascular selection committee was led by Ed Saltzman, President, and Michael Rice, Senior Consultant, of Defined Health, a leading business development strategy consulting firm.
