"I wish to thank Lars Wegner for his essential and invaluable contribution in bringing from its early start-up days to a listed company on The Nasdaq Capital Market in the US, running multiple clinical programs leading to the Company's initial public offering in 2021 and a staff headcount of 70 people.
