"We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Barone to the Nanoscope team. The regulatory expertise garnered during his tenure at the FDA will be instrumental as we continue to advance our pipeline through late-stage clinical development and navigate the regulatory process," said Sulagna Bhattacharya, co-founder and CEO of Nanoscope. "Dr. Barone will support our mission to bring sight-restoring therapies to patients with inherited retinal diseases in an expeditious manner."
"Nanoscope has the potential to impact the treatment landscape with its gene-agnostic, sight-restoring optogenetic therapies and bring these transformative therapeutic options to patients with severe vision loss due to inherited retinal diseases, for which there are no restorative therapies available," said Dr. Barone. "I look forward to taking MCO-010 through approval and advancing Nanoscope's follow-on assets to the clinic."
