Mr. Mohr served as Chief Operating & Business Officer and Head of Commercial Development at AZTherapies. He serves as a Board Member at Mesentech. He brings over 20 years of experience in the biopharmaceutical industry. His expertise encompasses leadership roles in entrepreneurial ventures, as well as P&L, commercial/marketing, and business development in large pharma and small biopharma organizations.

As founding CEO, Jay secured a license from Fujisawa (now Astellas) for Gloucester Pharmaceuticals' lead compound, Istodax™ (romidepsin), a novel HDAC inhibitor.
