Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy welcomes two new members to its Board of Directors, further expanding its powerful network of accomplished innovators in science, business, finance and advocacy.
Gbola Amusa, MD, MBA, CFA, partner and chief scientific officer of Chardan, is responsible for advising disruptive health care companies on capital formation strategies, mergers and acquisitions, and other transactions. Dr. Amusa joined Chardan at the end of 2014 to focus on identifying companies that will generate exceptionally high long-term investment returns from creating and sharing in real value for society. While in the Chardan Equity Research Department from 2014 through July 2021, Dr. Amusa’s coverage, top picks and counter-consensus calls were all associated with exceptional alpha generation. In a 2019 study by TipRanks, Dr. Amusa was ranked second out of more than 6,000 Wall Street analysts for his stock-picking performance.
