Keith McCormick Joins Trovagene, Inc. as Head of Commercial Operations

SAN DIEGO, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trovagene, Inc. (Pink Sheets:  TROV.PK), a developer of transrenal molecular diagnostics, announced the appointment of Keith McCormick as head of commercial operations, effective April 16, 2012.

McCormick brings extensive pharmaceutical and diagnostic sales, marketing and operational experience. Most recently, he served as senior director of sales operations at bioTheranostics, Inc.  McCormick served as a member of the AviaraDx, Inc. executive team, where he built the commercial sales and marketing organization that successfully launched CancerTYPE ID, a molecular cancer classifier, as well as the Breast Cancer Index, a prognostic test for women with ER-positive, lymph-node negative breast cancer.  In September 2008, AviaraDx was sold to bioMerieux S.A. of France and renamed bioTheranostics.

Prior to AviaraDx, McCormick spent 10 years at Schering Plough and Biogen Idec, selling and marketing specialty pharmaceuticals. His career included assignments and leadership roles in sales, sales management, market research, product management, and new product planning.  McCormick began his healthcare career with Dianon Systems, a diagnostic specialty laboratory providing serum, tissue and genetic tests for cancer and inherited disorders.

"Keith's broad experience and in-depth understanding of the oncology and diagnostic markets will guide our commercial efforts," said Antonius Schuh, Ph.D., chief executive officer for Trovagene. "The company will focus its internal efforts on urine-based laboratory-developed tests for the detection of oncogene mutations in cancer patients. Keith's access to top-tier cancer centers and clinical opinion leaders, and his proven track record in building commercial organizations, will be critical components of Trovagene's success."
