Dalgleish is also a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in both the UK and Australia, in addition to the Royal College of Pathologists and the Academy of Medical Sciences. He has published seminal papers on HIV, its receptor on lymph nodes and its pathogenesis.
“I am delighted to join the SAB of ViralClear Pharmaceuticals with my long-term collaborator, friend and colleague Jerry Zeldis with whom I worked with for several years successfully developing lenalidomide and pomalidomide, and I look forward to repeating this success against COVID-19.” Dalgleish said.
The professor’s addition is the second in as many days for the SAB, which yesterday welcomed drug developer Michael Sofia to its ranks.
ViralClear formed the board in July to review its drug discovery and development and counsel the company on its mission to control emerging infections and viral diseases, including the coronavirus (COVID-19).
