"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.

In October, Prolong presented Phase I data for its flagship product SANGUINATE an intravenous therapeutic that combines the beneficial functions of a carbon monoxide releasing molecule with an oxygen transfer agent as well as acting as a plasma expander. SANGUINATE was found to be well tolerated with no serious adverse events, and is now moving forward into Phase II trials in patients with sickle cell disease who suffer from painful vaso-occlusive crises. 

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."
