BioPorto adds Dr. Tabari Baker as VP of Global Medical Affairs

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK and BOSTON, MA, February 14, 2023, (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BioPorto A/S (BioPorto or Company) (CPH:BIOPOR) today announced the addition of Dr. Tabari Baker as Vice President of Global Medical Affairs. In this role, Dr. Baker will lead BioPorto’s medical and scientific support for NGAL tests and build upon its strong relationships with key industry stakeholders.

“Expanding market awareness of the prevalence and seriousness of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and educating clinicians on the NGAL assay’s clinical value in addressing AKI are key components of our strategy to drive market adoption of our flagship product,” said Tony Pare, BioPorto’s CEO. “Tabari brings a wealth of experience and expertise in introducing new diagnostic solutions to the global clinical community. I’m confident that his proven track record of successful product launches with highly effective medical initiatives well-prepares him to lead and build BioPorto’s medical affairs team.”

“I am very excited to join BioPorto and lead the medical affairs team,” remarked Dr. Baker. “NGAL testing can save lives by detecting AKI days earlier than current approaches. As a diagnostic solution, it helps clinicians improve prognosis and clarifies patient treatment. This team has the opportunity to partner with scientific and clinical experts to address an important, unmet medical need and positively impact the outcomes of patients suffering from, or at risk of, AKI.”

Dr. Baker most recently served as Director of Strategic Healthcare Partnerships at Roche Diagnostics, where he led cross-enterprise initiatives to communicate its diagnostic portfolio’s medical value throughout the patient journey. Also at Roche, Dr. Baker supported the launch of multiple companion diagnostic tests by providing clinical, scientific, and educational expertise as a Scientific Affairs Manager. Previously, Dr. Baker served in research and clinical liaison roles at Caris Life Sciences. Dr. Baker received his Ph.D. in Tumor Biology from Georgetown University.
