Daniel Lewi has joined Aparito as the new Business Development Manager and brings with him extensive experience in the rare disease space. As the founder of the rare disease charity The Cure & Action for Tay-Sachs (CATS) Foundation, he is fully aware of the challenges that many families face when taking part in clinical trials whilst also juggling their day to day life.
After Daniel’s eldest daughter Amelie was diagnosed with Tay-Sachs in 2011 at 15 months of age and upon finding that there was no dedicated charity providing support for families affected by this disease he set set-up The CATS Foundation with his wife Patricia. Since the charity was launched, they have been able to grow the organisation so that it now offers a variety of services to its family members and has been actively involved in the research and establishment of clinical trials investigating therapeutic treatments for Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease.
Daniel also brings practical knowledge with him as a Business Development Manager in the financial sector. He hopes that this experience will help drive forward the important and exciting work that Aparito has planned for the future.
