Molecular diagnostics firm Eragen (Madison, Wisconsin) has appointed Miguel Blanc as vice-president of corporate development. With more than ten years' experience in this specialist area, Mr Blanc joins the firm from GE Healthcare, where he was manager of global business development and played a role in several major acquisitions for the $3bn biosciences division during his tenure there. His list of achievements includes completing the strategic assessment and due diligence for GE's entry into the life sciences market through the $11bn-acquisition of Amersham in 2004, and being instrumental in the (ultimately aborted) $8.13bn acquisition of Abbott Labs' diagnostics and POC divisions.
