I wish my successor and all dSPACE employees the necessary skills, much success, and all the best for the future," said Goetzeler.

Martin Goetzeler has led the dSPACE company since March 1, 2018. Portfolio expansions in virtual and real simulation and validation to cover market and customer requirements in a timely manner, especially in automated and autonomous driving and in the software-defined vehicle were important milestones during this time. In addition to the great importance of software-in-the-loop simulation in this process, technologies such as AI and cloud are now also being used in the products. At the same time, he systematically built up structures and processes to sustainably secure the strong global growth.

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 07:00:00 CET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP).

Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
