"We are pleased to welcome Dale and Brent to the Tetra Board and Graham to our executive team,” Tetra Bio-Pharma chairman Bill Cheliak said in a statement on the appointments.

New COO Graham Wood holds a PhD from McGill University and spent over 21 years in the pharmaceutical industry, developing an expertise in inhalation clinical research. Wood spent five years at leading clinical research facility Altasciences, where he conducted over 40 studies on different cannabinoid products including Tetra’s own QIXLEEF.

Chamberland said. “The addition of Graham will provide me and the Board with the oversight required to manage our clinical program."
