"Oppenheimer has a long-standing commitment to the biotechnology industry, and Kevin's addition allows us to significantly deepen our domain expertise. His experience in the key subsectors of molecular diagnostics, emerging technologies, infectious diseases, and of course oncology, makes him the ideal addition as we continue to expand our team."
