Xiaoqiang Yan, Ph.D.
Chairman, CEO
Dr. Yan has 30 years of biopharmaceutical industry experience in new drug discovery and development with therapeutic focuses in hematology, oncology, autoimmune, and metabolic diseases. He first discovered the none pro-inflammatory properties of interleukin 22 (IL-22), designed and produced a recombinant human IL-22 dimer (F-652), and successfully translated the protective biology of IL-22 during inflammatory tissue damage to a novel biological drug. The significant clinical efficacy and excellent safety profile of the drug was demonstrated in acute graft versus host disease (GvHD) and acute alcoholic hepatitis phase IIa clinical trials. Dr. Yan built and led multiple teams following NMPA/FDA/EMA regulations and guidance, and successfully developed multiple first-in-class — and best-in-class — biological drugs from structure design, cell line development, and pre-clinical development. He conducted first-in-man clinical studies and global multicenter phase II/III clinical trials reaching expected clinical endpoints, including cGMP drug manufacturing. He is a successful serial biotech entrepreneur with more than 200 granted patents as a co-inventor and has over 30 scientific publications.
Ex-Chairman, CEO, CSO, co-founder of Generon Corporation Ltd. (Shanghai). Ex-VP, Research & Technology, Hutchison Medipharma Ltd.
