Pulse Biosciences, Inc., (NASDAQ: PLSE), a medical technology company developing a proprietary therapeutic treatment platform based on Nano-Pulse Electro-Signaling, today announced that it has appointed Holly Hartman, Ph.D., J.D., as its Vice President, Business Development and Corporate Strategy.
Dr. Hartman joins Pulse Biosciences after more than eight years in business development roles at Amgen where she helped to identify and evaluate strategic opportunities and partnerships for multiple therapeutic areas including oncology. Prior to Amgen, Dr. Hartman held various positions in investment banking working on life sciences transactions.
“We are excited to have someone with Dr. Hartman’s experience in immuno-oncology therapeutics and relationships in the biopharma community join our team,” said Darrin Uecker, CEO of Pulse Biosciences. "Pulse Biosciences is pioneering a medical device technology that has demonstrated a unique biologic effect and Dr. Hartman is uniquely qualified to work with key opinion leaders and potential partners as we explore the potential clinical applications for our technology.”
“I believe Pulse Bioscience’s platform technology provides an innovative approach to treating solid tumors and other indications,” said Dr. Hartman. “In particular, the pre-clinical data shows promise in the technology’s ability to target the tumor microenvironment while stimulating the host immune system capabilities. I believe our technology may offer a novel, toxicity-sparing approach to cancer care as a monotherapy and in combination with other modalities.”
Dr. Hartman earned her Ph.D. in comparative pathology with an emphasis in immunopathology, J.D. and B.A. in zoology all from the University of California, Davis.
About Pulse Biosciences
Pulse Biosciences is a medical technology company developing a therapeutic tissue treatment platform based on Nano-Pulse Electro-Signaling, a proprietary bioelectronics cell signaling technology. Published pre-clinical studies have shown that a single, brief exposure of Nano-Pulse Electro-Signaling to target tissue initiates a cascade of events within cells and in the surrounding microenvironment that results in apoptosis (cell death) and the priming of a durable adaptive immune response. Pulse Biosciences is pursuing a variety of applications for its technology that exploits the technology’s unique biologic effect in immuno-oncology, dermatology, aesthetics, and veterinary medicine. Clinical studies are being planned using the first commercial system designed to support a broad array of electrodes for use in superficial, minimally-invasive and open surgical procedures.
