Coffin has more than 20 years of experience in health care and life sciences. NTx works on enabling pharmaceutical RNA and protein development and production.

Alex Koglin, Ph.D., NTx’s co-founder, said Coffin’s appointment will help the company as it looks to grow in the future. Koglin will serve as president and chief science officer and as a member of the Board of Directors to drive continued research and development and manufacturing efforts and ensure technical readiness as the company heads toward larger scale production and commercialization.

“Jamie is an experienced and highly skilled leader who brings proven expertise from some of the world’s largest health care technology companies,”  Koglin said. “I look forward to working alongside him and the rest of our team to advance NTx into a worldwide operation that enables more equal and expedited access to life-changing therapeutics for all people.”

Coffin has led global, multi-billion-dollar business and Dell and IBM Healthcare. Most recently, Coffin served as the president and chief operating officer of Sema4, a health information company providing advanced genomic testing. During his tenure, the company’s revenue grew from less than $50 million to over $200 million and built up the team from under 300 to over 1,000 people in less than four years.
