Today, iCoat Medical welcomes Jacob Westman as its Head of Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls on a consultancy basis.

iCoat Medical has a growing pipeline of indications as well as an ambitious clinical program outlined for the coming years. The company aim to not only expand its clinical program for TUM012 but also advance its second product family TUM020 towards clinical stage.
