From 2010 to 2014, Ms. Seymour served as Chief Financial Officer of Hemaquest Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a venture-backed clinical development stage biotechnology company developing proprietary small molecules for the treatment of life-threatening hematologic disorders. From 2001 to 2009, Ms. Seymour served as Chief Financial Officer of Favrille, Inc.

While at Favrille, she was instrumental in raising more than USD 200 million in multiple private and public equity and debt financings, including the company's initial public offering. Earlier in her career, Ms. Seymour consulted as Chief Financial Officer for a number of biotechnology companies and served for more than eight years in various positions, including audit manager with Deloitte LLP and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. She is currently a member of the board of directors and audit committee chair of Beacon Discovery, Inc., a privately-held company working to identify and advance molecules targeting G protein-coupled receptors.

On April 26, 2019, the Company and Ms. Seymour entered into an employment agreement (the “ Agreement ”) that provides for part-time at-will employment with the Company.
