ROCKVILLE, Md. and BALTIMORE, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioHealth Innovation, Inc. (BHI), a regional private-public partnership focusing on commercializing market-relevant biohealth innovations and increasing access to early-stage funding in Central Maryland, announced today that Reg Seeto, M.D., has been appointed to the BHI Board of Directors. Dr. Seeto currently serves as Vice President, Head of Partnering & Strategy at MedImmune, the global biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca. 

"It is a pleasure to welcome Reg to the BHI Board of Directors," said Doug Liu, Chair, BHI Board of Directors, and Senior Vice President of Global Operations for Qiagen. "Reg's background in business development and partnering strategy will be an important asset to our Board as we give counsel to BHI in its fostering of startups in Central Maryland. We look forward to his contributions to this Board, to the BHI organization, and to the biohealth startup community."
