Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZYNE), the leader in innovative pharmaceutically-produced transdermal cannabinoid therapies for rare and near-rare neuropsychiatric disorders, today announced that Ray Mannion, Zynerba’s Vice President of Manufacturing, will provide a formal presentation during the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Public Hearing on Scientific Data and Information about Products Containing Cannabis or Cannabis-Derived Compounds. As noted in the Federal Register, the public hearing is scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET tomorrow, May 31, 2019.
Slides from Mr. Mannion’s presentation, entitled ‘Cannabinoid Manufacturing and Product Quality’, are now available on Zynerba’s corporate website at https://zynerba.com/publications/.
“The FDA has a well-established history of protecting public health and safety through a variety of essential strategies, including existing regulations and processes that govern the manufacture of pharmaceutical products and establish controls to ensure necessary quality and safety standards are met,” said Armando Anido, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zynerba. “This existing robust framework should be leveraged in the regulation of all cannabinoid products, as less stringent manufacturing and quality standards would create an unnecessary public health risk.”
Ray Mannion has served as Zynerba’s Vice President of Manufacturing since April 2017. He has more than 35 years of international manufacturing, operations and engineering experience in the pharmaceutical, medical devices and electrical connection systems industries. Prior to Zynerba, he was Senior Director, Third Party Operations for Teva Pharmaceuticals Inc. where he successfully managed the production scale up for the commercial launch of the Zecuity migraine patch while also managing all technical aspects of the project. Prior to Teva, Mr. Mannion held roles of increasing responsibility at NuPathe, Puricore, Kensey Nash Corporation, AMP Incorporated and others. Mr. Mannion received a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Rutgers University and an M.B.A from Shippensburg University.
