The Nomination Committee of Elicera Therapeutics AB (publ) proposes Sharon Longhurst as new board member. Sharon Longhurst is a specialist in CMC (Chemistry, Manufacturing and Control) and has solid experience for the development that is planned in Elicera.


Elicera informed in a press release on October 31, 2023 that a Nomination Committee was formed ahead of the annual meeting on May 16, 2024.


The Nomination Committee consists of Magnus Essand (chair), Di Yu and Jamal El-Mosleh, that together controlled 47.1 of the votes. The Nomination Committee has thus unanimously proposed a re-election of the current Board: Agneta Edberg (chair), Magnus Essand, Christina Herder and Margareth Jorvid as ordinary members and Di Yu as deputy member. Jan Zetterberg has declined re-election.


Sharon Longhurst holds a PhD in Virology from the University of Warwick and BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Surrey.


Sharon Longhurst (born 1969) has more than 20 years' experience in CMC development of biological medicinal products, specializing in Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMP). Her previous positions include VP of Development at Gadeta BV, Head of CMC at Immunicum AB (now Mendus) and Akari Therapeutics. She has also worked as a Senior Pharmaceutical Asessor at the MHRA (UK competent authority). Current assignments include Director at Advanced Biologics Consulting Ltd where she provides CMC consulting services to biotech companies.  


Sharon Longhurst is independent in relation to the senior executives of the company and major shareholders. She is, however, contracted to provide independent CMC consulting services to Elicera.


The Committee also proposes the re-election of RSM, with signatory auditor Kristoffer Håkansson.

The Nomination Committee proposes remuneration to the board. Payment of SEK 240,000 is proposed for the Chairman of the Board and SEK 120,000 is proposed for external members (eg Christina Herder, Margareth Jorvid and Sharon Longhurst). The auditor will be remunerated according to the approved offer.


The Annual General Meeting will be held on May 16, 2024, at 1:00 p.m. at the offices of Advokatfirman Delphi (Mäster Samuelsgatan 17 in Stockholm) and attorney Mats Dahlberg has been proposed to chair the Meeting.
