Previously, Dr. MacDonald held positions of increasing responsibility at Merck, including Executive Director of Toxicology. He received his Ph.D. in toxicology in 1975 from the University of Cincinnati and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Vanderbilt University. He became a diplomate of the American Board of Toxicology in 1980.

" Jim MacDonald 's track record of getting pharmaceuticals approved by FDA and onto the market speaks for itself," said Robert Freedman , Hµrel's Chairman and CEO. "Hµrel is privileged to benefit from Jim's extraordinary wisdom and experience, both as a scientist and as a drug development executive. His guidance will be invaluable. We welcome Jim to the Board as a colleague and friend."
