Biotechnology company CuraSen Therapeutics recently appointed Peter Butera as senior vice president of operations.

The company is developing small molecule drugs to treat patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease.

Previously, Mr. Butera spent 10 years as director and vice president of clinical operations at Pain Therapeutics. He was also vice president of clinical operations at Attenua and held the same role at Afferent before it was acquired by Merck & Co in 2016.

Mr. Butera's experience will be pivotal to the company's clinical development program, which "focuses on restoration of lost neurological function" by receptor activation in the brain, according to Anthony Ford, PhD, CEO of CuraSen.
