Zug, Switzerland, October 1, 2019 — mymeleon Ltd. is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Paolo Colombani as Chief Operating Officer and member of the executive with effect from October 1, 2019. Paolo brings more than 25 years’ experience of working internationally as a scientist, most of it at one of the leading Universities of the World, the ETH Zurich. He always focused on a holistic view to integrate the relevant factors responsible for performance and maintaining human health and to bridge the gap between science and the general population.
Dr. Christoph von Arb, President of the board said: “I am very pleased and honoured that Dr. Colombani has joined the mymeleon team. He will be key to realizing the full potential of our assets and making strategic decisions on how to implement them. Paolo brings a wealth of experience and broad expertise covering substantial parts of the scientific background. He also has the necessary understanding of the IT and global environment. I look forward to working with Paolo as he creates and builds our operating organization to turn our cutting edge technologies into anti-inflammaging products and services to benefit the global community.”
Paolo Colombani commented: “I am thrilled to join the mymeleon executive team at this critical stage, where high class scientific evidence are being merged with cutting edge technologies in Artificial Intelligence in order to provide personalized healthcare to the public. The time is truly ripe as it only recently became clear that many of our non-communicable diseases like diabetes, adiposity, or depression share the common ground of a low-grade chronic inflammation and, thus, the preventive measures can be focused on reducing this particular type of inflammation, which is also associated with premature aging. The anti-inflammaging approach of mymeleon via API has an enormous potential for all of us. Through the collaboration with large companies with many clients and users we will empower many people to live a longer and healthier life with less disabilities.”
