RNA delivery and therapeutics company SiSaf Ltd today announced that it has appointed Dr. Richard Goodfellow to its Board of Directors.

He has acted as a consultant to SiSaf since 2021.
SiSaf’s founder and CEO Dr. Suzanne Saffie-Siebert said, “I’m delighted to welcome Richard to our Board. As we are building and expanding our commercial partnerships and in-house pipeline of RNA therapeutics, Richard’s vast range of experience in the life science industry will be a valuable addition to SiSaf’s board and will support the company’s further growth.”
Dr Richard Goodfellow commented on his appointment as Non-Executive Director, “I welcome the opportunity to join SiSaf’s Board.
