Brent Ahrens

Brenton K. Ahrens has served as a member of our board of directors since December 2009.

Mr. Ahrens is a general partner with Canaan Partners and has been with the firm since 1999.

Mr. Ahrens also serves as a member of the board of directors of several private biopharmaceutical companies, including Kalidex Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Elevation Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Relievant MedSystems, Inc.

Mr. Ahrens holds a B.S. and an M.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Dayton and an M.B.A. from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

We believe that Mr. Ahrens’ extensive experience as a venture capital investor and his service on the boards of directors of other biopharmaceutical companies give him the qualifications and skills to serve as a director and provide the board with valuable insight into a broad range of issues related to our business activities at this stage in our development.
