The self-proclaimed “spatial biology company” Akoya Biosciences (NSDQ:AKYA) has appointed Marilee Moy as its chief people officer.
Moy has more than three decades of experience in human resources and has worked for several life science companies, including Questcor, Counsyl, Tails Biomedical, Genentech and Johnson & Johnson.
Akoya, which went public last year, had raised more than $83 million in funding.
The company was founded in 2015 to commercialize technology developed at Stanford University that enables ultra-high multiplexed analysis for biomarker discovery.
Akoya specializes in spatial phenotyping, which provides insights into cell-cell interactions within tissue.
The company says its PhenoCycler-Fusion system can map one million cells in 10 minutes.
“As a member of our senior leadership team, I am particularly interested in the development of the company’s strategic and organizational plans from the perspective of its impact on employees,” Moy said.
