“I look very much forward to being part of the Board of Directors and supporting Novo Nordisk Pharmatech on the journey into new growth areas delivering superior ingredients to the regenerative market. At the same time, it is exciting to be part of further elevating the existing product portfolio, which holds some fantastic products.”
