Stephen Cary is the co-founder and CEO of Omniox, and co-inventor of the H-NOX technology. Stephen identified H-NOX as a potential therapeutic platform while working at the University of California, Berkeley. He secured the first financial support for Omniox by winning the inaugural Rogers Family Foundation “Bridging the Gap” Award at QB3. Subsequently, Stephen and his team obtained multiple NIH SBIR awards and a Wellcome Trust Translation Award to build Omniox’ operations and enable development of the H-NOX platform.
Prior to launching Omniox, Stephen worked at Genentech in Market Strategy, and before that in Immunology Research. He participated extensively in early stage development projects, concentrating on strategic processes of transitioning therapeutic candidates from late-stage research to early development, and provided market and endpoint inputs into design of clinical trials. Stephen obtained his PhD in Biological Chemistry with Michael Marletta at the University of Michigan, and his Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry at Yale University.
