“Teva has announced the appointment of Timothy Wright as its new business development strategy and innovation head.“

He most recently served as director of the Drug Discovery and Development Institute at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, where he played a key role in defining its activities, while establishing external networks and partnerships to aid its research efforts.

In his new role at Teva, Mr Wright will be responsible for identifying new sources of innovation and growth that are extensions of Teva's business model.
