Alexander Egeberg joins LEO Pharma from his role as professor of dermatology at the University of Copenhagen and head of a clinic in Northern Europe for biologic therapy at Bispebjerg Hospital's Department of Dermatology.

I look very much forward to applying my experience and perspective to support the company’s commitment to advancing care for patients with dermatological diseases.”
