The boards of both companies appointed Mr Webb, who has been CEO of four biotechnology companies as well as chair of the MassBio industry organization. Most recently, he was president and CEO of Allegro Diagnostics, a venture-backed, molecular diagnostics company focused on lung cancer that was acquired by Veracyte in 2014.
