Former COO and CSO of IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. Joins Board of Directors for Vet-Stem, Inc.

July 11, 2013 --

Vet-Stem, Inc. is proud to announce the addition of Erwin F. Workman, Jr., PhD, to their Board of Directors.  Dr. Workman has over 35 years of successful diagnostic and scientific development experience with Idexx Laboratories, Inc. (IDXX) and Abbott Laboratories, Inc. (ABT).  Dr. Workman’s successes in Research and Development, Business Operations, Manufacturing and Distribution while at Idexx are a good marriage with Vet-Stem’s decade of development in the field of Regenerative Veterinary Medicine.

 

Dr. Workman was a key participant in the creation of the world’s largest veterinary diagnostic company, Idexx, helping to lead the company through startup, new product development, initial profitability, global expansion and a successful IPO.  Prior to joining Idexx Dr. Workman oversaw and directed the Research and Development of the Hepatitis and AIDS business unit of Abbott Laboratories, Inc.

 

“Dr. Workman will bring many years of proven experience to the Board of Directors, while helping guide Vet-Stem to become a global leader in Regenerative Veterinary Medicine.  Idexx encountered many of the same growth and new product development challenges Vet-Stem faces today.  I am proud to have Dr. Workman as a trusted advisor during this phase of rapid expansion and new product development,” states Robert Harman, DVM, CEO and Founder of Vet-Stem, Inc.

 

“It is a privilege to be associated with the Vet-Stem management team and their exciting and proprietary stem cell technology,” says Dr. Workman.  “Vet-Stem has been a pioneer in the field of regenerative medicine for animals and has extensive laboratory and clinical experience with adipose tissue-derived stem cells.  The use of these cells offers tremendous therapeutic potential and could revolutionize the way veterinarians treat injuries or disease states where control of pain and regeneration of healthy tissue is crucial.”

 

Dr. Workman’s position on the Board of Directors for Vet-Stem will serve the purpose of leading strategic planning and execution for current and future services and products.  He will compliment the other board members that represent the venture capital perspective (Linda Powers), multi-national agribusiness (Dr. Mike McCloskey), and biotechnology operations and distribution (Mike Dale).
