Former Board Member Exits Company at Key Moment of Change

Today, IRLAB Therapeutics AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: IRLAB A) announced that An van Es-Johansson has chosen to step down from her role as a member of the board. IRLAB Therapeutics is a Gothenburg, Sweden-based company that is dedicated to discovering and developing innovative treatments for Parkinson’s disease.

An van Es-Johansson’s departure from the Board of IRLAB will leave it with five members, in accordance with the organization’s articles of association which stipulate that the Board should have at least three and no more than ten members. This number will remain until the next annual general meeting in June 2023, when a new Board will be elected.

“Carola Lemne, Chair of the Board at IRLAB, expressed her gratitude for An’s hard work and dedication over the past year.”
