BOSTON and DURHAM, N.C., Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Parexel, a leading global clinical research organization (CRO) focused on development and delivery of innovative new therapies to advance patient health, today announced Executive Vice President and Global Head of Biotech Jim Anthony has been named to the PharmaVOICE 100 list of the most inspiring people in the life sciences industry. Mr. Anthony was recognized for his outstanding leadership, ready-for-anything attitude and relationship-building prowess to grow Parexel’s Biotech business with a Patients-First approach. His leadership has been transformational to the company’s growth while contributing to innovative new therapies, such as Cell and Gene, to assist patients with unmet healthcare needs in areas like oncology and rare disease.
