Core Team

The Imago team is composed of experienced professionals who are veterans of venerated companies such as Genzyme, Genentech, Amgen, Pharmacia, and Searle. This team has worked together for ten years pioneering the small company corporate model of distributed operations working out of offices and labs from San Francisco to Somerset, England.

The team is led by Hugh Young Rienhoff, Jr., a physician with 25 years of experience in the field of biotechnology.
