Hired someone new and exciting? Promoted a rising star? Finally solved that hard-to-fill spot? Share the news with us, and we’ll share it with others. That’s right. Send us your changes, and we’ll find a home for them. Don’t be shy. Everyone wants to know who is coming and going.

And here is our regular feature in which we highlight a different person each week. This time around, we note that Lyra Therapeutics hired Richard Nieman as chief medical officer. Previously, he worked at Norgine, where he was chief development and medical officer.


But all work and no play can make for a dull chief medical officer. So in his spare time, Nieman likes to walk his dog, George, a golden retriever. “It’s an opportunity to get exercise and time away, instead of going to the gym. I do this regularly — twice a day,” he tells us. By his estimate, he and George cover four to five miles a day, or between 11,000 to 12,000 steps during those two walks.”
