Erika also brings outstanding relationships with researchers and clinicians, forged during her years working in neuroscience and neurosurgery at Mayo Clinic and continuing after she transitioned to industry.”
“I am humbled by the opportunity to help advance ONWARD’s therapies to address critical unmet needs for people who have experienced spinal cord injury. I am also thrilled to join this passionate and highly capable leadership team, which is driven to make these important therapies accessible as soon as possible,” commented Erika Ross.
New VP, Global Marketing – Sarah Moore
Sarah Moore will join ONWARD as Vice President, Global Marketing, effective February 1, 2023. In this role, Sarah will be responsible for ONWARD’s global marketing operations, including product management and launch planning.

Prior to that, she held various leadership roles in global marketing across multiple Johnson & Johnson medical device franchises, most recently as the business unit leader for J&J’s Advanced Imaging business. Sarah earned an MBA from Duke University and a BA in German from Washington and Lee University.
“Sarah’s extensive background in the marketing of medical devices, and particularly neuromodulation therapies, will be invaluable as we prepare to commercialize our first therapy later this year,” said Dave Marver. “She brings a broad range of capabilities that extend beyond marketing which will help us scale.”
“I am inspired by the ONWARD mission, and it’s an honor to join this world-class team focused on restoring function in people with spinal cord injury. I am looking forward to partnering with the clinical community to bring this game-changing therapy to market,” added Sarah Moore.
