• Although I’ve been a part of a number of successful drug launches at Incyte Corporation, DuPont and Merck, I’ve seen an even larger number of program failures. The Gliknik team is taking on immense challenges as it seeks to discover and develop drugs for immune disorders, and I believe they’ve got what it takes to succeed.

    – Paul Friedman, M.D., Gliknik Board Member

  • For me, it’s a matter of pride that important drugs from my labs have made it to the market and are being used so widely in combination therapy for HIV and more recently in Hepatitis C. I’m also proud to be on the Board of Gliknik, which I expect will generate significant new treatment options for people living with autoimmune diseases and cancers. I enjoy sharing what I have learned starting and selling several biotech companies.  

    – Raymond Schinazi, Ph.D., D.Sc., Gliknik Board Member

  • We have taken a bit of a different path than that taken by other companies – and it seems to be working. We are finding and advancing multiple drugs that may help a lot of people with cancers and autoimmune disorders.

    – David Block, Gliknik Co-Founder & CEO
