Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, has a new strategic advisor. The company announced that Julian Gangolli, the former president of GW Pharmaceuticals USA, has joined Lexaria as a strategic advisor. During his time at GW Pharmaceuticals, Gangolli managed US Food and Drug Administration approval of Epidiolex(R), the only pure cannabidiol (“CBD”) drug ever approved by the agency; he also oversaw the commercialization of the drug in the United States, which ultimately led to Jazz Pharmaceuticals acquiring GW Pharmaceuticals in a $7.2 billion transaction. In addition to his work at GW Pharmaceuticals, Gangolli served as North American president of Allergan and a member of its executive management team, which guided the sale of Allergan to Actavis. In the announcement, Gangolli noted that Lexaria has become an established force in the field of improved drug delivery, and he hopes to assist the company in its commercial development of DehydraTECH. “As we intensify our focus during 2023 on commercial execution of our robust DehydraTECH technology portfolio, I am very pleased to welcome Julian with his extensive pharmaceutical experience, to the broadening Lexaria team,” said Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka in the press release.
