Shelley Boyd President and Chief Scientific Officer

Dr Shelley Boyd is an Ophthalmologist and Clinician-Scientist at St Michael's Hospital, specializing in diseases of the retina - specifically Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). She also holds appointments as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences (DOVS) and the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology (LMP) at the University of Toronto, as well as Adjunct Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering at McMaster University.
Dr Boyd was previously Head of the Ocular Angiogenesis program, worldwide, with Novartis Pharmaceuticals overseeing their successful translational research program in "wet" AMD that brought today's treatment from bench to bedside. Learning from this experience, she now uniquely aligns her knowledge of science, medicine and the pharmaceutical industry to finding new treatments for "dry" AMD.
In 2014, Dr Boyd established Canada's only dedicated High-Risk Dry AMD clinic and offers specialized imaging and research programs for patients with high-risk disease. She also heads a research laboratory which develops new theories and techniques, and investigates therapeutic options for dry AMD with the goal of translating the pre-clinical work to the clinic.

Shelley Boyd, MD, president and CSO, Translatum Medicus Inc. (TMi), reports the company has started raising capital to initiate preclinical studies - and possibly Phase II clinical trials - of TMI-018, a drug candidate that might convert potentially destructive macrophages. The company is building a case that aggressive M1 macrophages are the cause of retinal damage and geographic atrophy brought on by Dry AMD. Dr. Boyd says animal studies of TM1-018 suggest those destructive macrophages can be reverted to "neutral" M2 macrophages that perform more of a housekeeping role within the eye. She says TMI has developed an animal model to test TMI-018 as a means of reducing the retinal damage. Dr. Boyd in addition announced the company has expanded its management team and scientific advisory board. It's also been selected as a charter member of the JLabs incubator in Toronto. TMI hopes to begin preclinical trials next year.
