On March 18, 2024, Arvinas, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), announced the appointment of Noah Berkowitz, M.D., Ph.D., to the role of chief medical officer, effective as of March 18, 2024. Dr. Berkowitz will lead the ongoing clinical development of the Company’s PROTAC® protein degrader programs in oncology and neuroscience.
Dr. Berkowitz has more than 20 years of experience in advancing programs through early and late stages of development, including experience in clinical development, regulatory, and medical affairs. Dr. Berkowitz most recently served as Senior Vice President, Development Unit Head, Hematology, at Bristol-Myers Squibb, a global biopharmaceutical company.
