Date:12/3/2009

LA JOLLA, Calif., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Board of Trustees of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies unanimously voted to elect three new members during its Nov. 13 meeting in La Jolla.

Fred Dotzler is co-founder and Managing Director of De Novo Ventures in Palo Alto, Calif. De Novo is investing $650 million from three funds in early stage medical device and biotechnology companies. Dotzler founded Medicus Venture Partners in 1989. He has invested in four companies that achieved market values greater than $1 billion: San Diego-based Biosite (acquired by IMC), Inhale Therapeutic Systems, Omnicell, and Tularik Inc. (acquired by Amgen).

Prior to venture capital, Dotzler served in positions in marketing, finance, and operations for Searle, Millipore, Merrimack Laboratories, and IBM. Dotzler earned an MBA from the University of Chicago, a master's equivalent in Economics from the University of Louvain, Belgium, and a bachelor's degree in Engineering from Iowa State University, where he received a Professional Achievement Citation in Engineering in 2000.

The Salk Board of Trustees also elected literary agent Linda Chester. She begins her three-year term after having served as liaison to the Board for the Institute's International Council. Chester is founding president of the Linda Chester Literary Agency, which has bi-coastal offices (New York City and La Jolla, Calif.) and has represented many bestselling authors. Her agency represents a wide variety of adult literary and commercial fiction, as well as an array of non-fiction projects in areas that include science, business, finance, history, popular culture, spirituality, and biography.

Mary Jane Salk, who also comes from the publishing world, is replacing Chester as International Council liaison. She has served as editor of Magazine Management and editorial director of Transworld Feature Syndicate, an international magazine consortium. The widow of Dr. Lee Salk, brother to Dr. Jonas Salk, Salk is the author of five young adult books for Chelsea House Publishers, and was associate producer of the feature films Goodbye, New York and Forever Lulu.
