Franklin Pass, M.D., Chairman and CEO - Frank graduated from the University of Minnesota and University of Minnesota Medical School and then trained at Oregon Health Sciences University as a dermatologist. Following a dermatology residency and military service, he joined the faculty of Albert Einstein College of Medicine. At Einstein, he spent six years in an immunochemistry and molecular virology laboratory. He organized and led the residency training program in dermatology and collaborated in early human papilloma virus research. He returned to the faculty of the University of Minnesota Medical School in 1973 to continue his HPV research, which ultimately resulted in the formation of Molecular Genetics, Inc. in 1979. Dr. Pass formed MOGEN, a Dutch plant biotechnology research company that today is part of Syngenta. Dr. Pass left Molecular Genetics in 1987 to found Bioseeds International, Ltd. Bioseeds was purchased by Calgene in 1990. Dr. Pass then became CEO of Medi-Ject Corporation, assembled a cadre of engineers and greatly advanced the mechanics of needle-free drug delivery. Medi-Ject was merged with a Swiss drug delivery company in 2000 and today is Antares Pharma, Inc. In all, Dr. Pass has been a co-founder and CEO of six companies in the field of agricultural biotechnology, drug delivery, pharmaceutical discovery and diagnostics, three of which became public corporations with eventual shareholder value in excess of $4.0 billion. He has been a co-founder and leader of three professional associations and served as a director of several civic arts organizations. His academic and industry contributions in the field of HPV helped to delineate the role of HPV in human cancer and in the design of papilloma virus vaccines, and he supported the fundamental development of genetically modified corn. Dr. Pass has published over forty scientific papers.

Doug worked with Dr. Pass at two early stage biotechnology ventures dating back to 1980.
