IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ClearPoint Neuro, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLPT), a global therapy-enabling platform company providing navigation and delivery to the brain, today announced that Ernesto Salegio, PhD will join the Company as Vice President, Segment Leader Translational and Pre-Clinical Research as part of ClearPoint’s Biologics and Drug Delivery team on March 1, 2021. Dr. Salegio brings over 19 years of experience in translational neuroscience with direct pre-clinical central nervous system (CNS) expertise in the delivery of therapeutics to the brain and spinal cord, including over 16 years of gene therapy experience working with adeno-associated viral vectors (AAV).

“Our current and prospective partners working on gene and stem cell therapies have an enormous unmet need for pre-clinical support,” commented Jeremy Stigall, Vice President, Biologics & Drug Delivery Development. “Ernesto’s extensive pre-clinical expertise in the intraparenchymal administration of therapeutics under image-guidance, as well into cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), will allow ClearPoint to add crucial translational consulting services for our biologics partners. When we establish relationships with pharmaceutical partners well before the clinic, ClearPoint products and services can be incorporated throughout the entire development process, delivering consistent, predictable performance, and providing government agencies assurance that the navigation and delivery platform will remain constant from bench-to-bedside. We aim to become their comprehensive medical device partner, allowing them to focus on more traditional pharmaceutical challenges, while ClearPoint delivers state-of-the-art medical device and therapy delivery.”

“I am thrilled to become a member of the ClearPoint team,” commented Dr. Salegio. “After spending almost two decades focusing on translational research, image-guided delivery protocols, complex surgical procedures and in the development of CNS therapies, I am delighted to drive the expansion of ClearPoint’s capabilities. I am eager to leverage their current pre-clinical and clinical portfolio, as well as to their pipeline of innovative tools on the horizon, to provide customized solutions to current and future ClearPoint pharmaceutical partners.”
