Sienna expands Clinical Advisory Board


Melbourne, Australia, 16 March 2020:  Sienna Cancer Diagnostics Ltd (ASX:SDX) has appointed Professor Geoff McCaughan to its recently formed Clinical Advisory Board.

Professor McCaughan is Head of the Liver Injury & Cancer Program at the Centenary Institute, University of Sydney. After completing his postdoctoral training at the University of Oxford in 1986 as a CJ Martin Fellow, he returned to Sydney where he developed the basic research program for the AW Morrow Gastroenterology and Liver Centre at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital of which he is now the Director.

Sienna is building a Clinical Advisory Board that will provide the company with access to invaluable advice and expertise to develop and commercialise its cancer diagnostic tests. Professor McCaughan joins US-based urologist Dr Raoul Concepcion on Sienna’s Clinical Advisory Board.

Sienna’s CEO and Managing Director, Carl Stubbings said: “Professor McCaughan is an eminent gastroenterologist. His clinical experience, together with that of Dr Concepcion, will be enormously valuable in guiding the company’s development of new tests, including the previously announced development of a test for pancreatic cancer.”

Professor McCaughan said: “I am very excited to be working with the Sienna team. My focus has always been to improve clinical outcomes for patients and I believe the development of tests that aid in the early diagnosis of cancers, such as pancreatic cancer, will be a critical step in fulfilling that objective.”
