Antaros Medical has done several additions to senior management recently with both Caroline Engvall, initially appointed Antaros Site Director in Uppsala, and Anders Strigen, Chief Financial Officer.

Just recently, the company was also awarded with a Vinnova funding (Sweden’s Innovation Agency), to develop a unique imaging tool to aid better diagnosis and treatment of patients with chronic kidney disease

“We have, since we started some 3,5 years ago, seen a very positive development of the company. Elisabeth has been absolute key on this journey. She has now decided to retire and Caroline is taking over the COO position.  Anders and Caroline have brought key competences into the company and will be instrumental in a time of rapid growth. We are very happy to have them onboard.” says Johannes Hulthe, CEO at Antaros Medical.
