Our Team

Gregory R Wolfe

Gregory R. Wolfe, Ph.D. Chief Executive Officer and Cofounder

Cofounder and Chief Executive Officer at Susavion Biosciences. Dr. Wolfe also serves as a senior oncology consultant at Kantar Health, where he provides a wide range of business consulting services to both large and small pharmaceutical companies.

Building on his experience at Kantar Health, he cofounded Susavion Biosciences with the vision of advancing technology based on the discovery of multivalent, bioactive peptides that mimic carbohydrate ligands of lectin-type receptors for use as therapeutic modulators of the immune system.

Laura L Eggink

Laura L. Eggink, Ph.D. President and Cofounder

A former Assistant Professor Research of Biomedicine and Biotechnology at Arizona State University, Laura is a leading researcher on peptide mimetics.

Also an expert on cell signaling, she has worked with a number of experimental models ranging from chloroplasts to macrophages. Dr. Eggink, the inventor of 15 patents and 3 applications, is a leading investigator demonstrating the feasibility of modulating the immune system with peptide mimetics of carbohydrates.

J Kenneth Hoober

J. Kenneth Hoober, Ph.D. Chief Scientific Officer and Cofounder

As the Chair of Biochemistry, Temple Univ. School of Medicine and most recently, Chair in the School of Life Sciences, Arizona State University, Dr. Hoober has contributed to over 100 research publications.

Dr. Hoober has devoted much of his career to understanding the mechanisms of membrane biogenesis. He is particularly known for his contributions to the field of chloroplast membrane protein chemistry and synthesis. Dr. Hoober was involved in the early work on GcMAF and its ability to stimulate the activation of macrophages.
