Neil Almstead, Ph.D. joined PTC in 2000, and is responsible for PTC's efforts in research, non-clinical development and manufacturing. Under Dr. Almstead's direction, the research and development team has identified and progressed several clinical candidates for oncology and genetic disorders that are currently in advanced stages of clinical development. Ataluren, PTC's most advanced clinical candidate, is focused on the treatment of multiple genetic disorders including duchenne muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis. Dr. Almstead joined PTC from Procter & Gamble (P&G) where he was directly involved in the areas of inflammatory diseases and oncology. At P&G he was project leader for both the Matrix Metalloproteinase and Map kinase inhibitor projects. Dr. Almstead has coauthored more than 75 publications and patents pertaining to the design and synthesis of lead candidate compounds for genetic disorders, oncology and inflammatory diseases.

|Bruce E. Maryanoff, Ph.D.|
Professor/The Scripps Research Institute
Bruce Maryanoff has been active as a medicinal and organic chemist. He invented TOPAMAX topiramate, a unique sugar sulfamate drug, marketed worldwide for treating epilepsy and migraine, with annual sales >$2 billion. He is an internationally renownd expert in drug design and discovery, esp. the application of protein structure-based drug design. Since 1991 he pursued cardiovascular therapeutics, while seeking drugs for pulmonary inflammation, metabolic disorders, and epilepsy. In the past 15 years, his drug research has dealt with structure-based drug design; peptides/peptidomimetics; enzymes inhibitors, esp. serine proteases/kinases; integrin antagonists; ligands for G-protein-coupled receptors. His efforts led to many new chemical entities entering preclinical development, with 13 advancing into human clinical trials. He made seminal contributions to understanding stereochemistry and mechanism of the Wittig reaction; devised novel peptides that self-assemble to mimic native collagen. Maryanoff is an author on 270 scientific publications, including books (Editor), book chapters, review articles. He is an inventor on 100 U.S. patents (issued/pending), presented >150 invited lectures, mentored 11 postdocs. He is Assoc. Editor of ACS Med. Chem. Lett.; organized/edited a special issue of J. Med. Chem. to honor Dr. Paul Janssen; has served on editorial advisory boards for journals and research grant committees. Maryanoff received two American Chemical Society national awards, and the prestigious Smissman Award from the Med. Chem. Division of the ACS; was inducted into the ACS Medicinal Chemistry Hall of Fame in 2008; was elected Fellow of the ACS, Amer. Assoc. for the Advancement of Science, and Royal Society of Chemistry.
