UroGen Pharma Ltd. (Nasdaq: URGN), a biotech company devoted to creating and commercializing transformative treatments for urothelial and specialty cancers, has granted inducement restricted stock units (“RSUs”) to seven new employees in order to strengthen their workforce.

With the addition of this new team, UroGen can take the next steps to revolutionize the treatment of these cancers.
UroGen is offering up to 11,700 shares of its common stock to reward employees for their ongoing service.
