Our research team continues momentum of growth with two new principal investigators
September 21, 2023

We’re thrilled to announce the addition of Michelle Mallitz, M.D., and Thomas Wade, M.D., to our team to serve as principal investigators. In their roles, they will oversee and conduct objective clinical research to ensure independent, high quality and reproducible results, as well as manage oversight of compliance, financial, personnel and other related aspects of research projects. Coming from varying medical backgrounds, Drs. Mallitz and Wade bring a depth of knowledge and experience to the EmVenio team, allowing the research organization to conduct trials addressing a wider range of infectious diseases and therapeutic areas.

“The addition of these two incredible principal investigators is proof that EmVenio’s growth is focused on quality and not quantity. These individuals bring a level of expertise and skill that opens more doors for our team to conduct a multitude of research studies for pharmaceutical sponsors and clinical research organizations. With their added expertise, we can expand our range of studies, from immunizations against the latest infectious disease mutations to long-term treatments for diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”
