"Ron brings more than two decades of experience at the forefront of drug discovery to our efforts here at Prolong," said Dr. Abraham Abuchowski, Prolong's Chief Scientific Officer and CEO.

Dr. Jubin's experience includes key roles at Schering-Plough Research Institute and PBL Biomedical labs. At Schering-Plough, he served in major roles in the hepatitis C protease program, directed other HCV inhibitor programs and managed internal committees evaluating novel interferon candidate licensing opportunities. At PBL Biomedical, his tenure leading the R&D department at PBL resulted in the development of numerous interferon proteins, reagents and functional assay for evaluating immune and interferon functions.  Dr. Jubin received his Ph.D. in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics from the UMDNJ-NJMS Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Newark, NJ.

"This is an opportunity to work with the inventors of the world's leading drug delivery technology, PEGYLATION, at its birthplace here in New Jersey," said Dr. Jubin. "This is the sort of environment where historic, groundbreaking drug developments occur, and I am looking forward to being a part of the leadership team."
