InflaRx N.V.. (2/22/24). "Press Release: InflaRx Appoints Jan Medina as Head of Investor Relations". Jena.

InflaRx N.V. (Nasdaq: IFRX), a biopharmaceutical company pioneering anti-inflammatory therapeutics by targeting the complement system, today announced the appointment of Jan Medina, CFA, as Vice President and Head of Investor Relations of InflaRx. Mr. Medina brings over 25 years of extensive experience across the life sciences sector and capital markets, including in the areas of investor relations, communications and equity research.

Prof. Niels C. Riedemann, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of InflaRx, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jan to our team. His experience, proven track record and deep network with investors and capital markets will be invaluable as we continue to advance our clinical programs and strengthen our relationships with the investor community.”

Jan Medina commented: "It's a privilege to join InflaRx during this exciting time, with its strong execution and as the Company broadens its development efforts to meaningfully improve the treatment of chronic immune-inflammatory diseases. I am particularly excited about the promise of our new oral C5aR inhibitor INF904, which recently provided evidence of best-in-class potential. In addition, our late-stage asset vilobelimab is now in Phase III for pyoderma gangrenosum, an unmet medical need with no drug approved in the U.S. or Europe. I look forward to working with the dedicated team at InflaRx as we continue our next phase of pipeline value creation.”

Jan joins InflaRx from Olink Proteomics where he was Vice President, Investor Relations & Capital Markets. His previous IR experience includes roles at consultancy firms and at companies focused on oncology, immuno-oncology, hematology, specialty therapeutics and medical technology, ranging from early-stage ventures to global commercial entities. Jan’s sell-side experience includes roles within boutique and specialty research firms, as well as positions at several global investment banks. On the buy-side, Jan focused on healthcare and biotech. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Tulane University School of Engineering and is a CFA charterholder.
