ST. LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–C2N Diagnostics, a leader in advanced brain health diagnostics, which has had a recent series of robust research and funding developments, announces two additions to its executive leadership team.

Ozgur Sensoy, who has an established track record of commercialization in the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industries, joins C2N as Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations. In his new role, he will manage C2N’s innovative in vitro diagnostic (IVDx) product pipeline and expand the sales, marketing, and service capabilities of the company to enable broad access in the U.S. and globally for patients and providers. His successful career has involved numerous market development, product launch, and commercialization efforts in multiple specialty disease states. Sensoy spent the last 11 years at Quest Diagnostics where he held multiple leadership positions, managed various mergers-and-acquisitions and integrations, and most recently served as Head of U.S. Specialty Genetics. Prior to Quest, he served in leadership positions at Sanofi and Bayer Pharmaceuticals. Sensoy earned his Master of Business Administration from Yale School of Management and Master of Science and Bachelor of Science Engineering degrees from Bogazici University in Turkey, his native country.
Daniel Connell joins as Head of Strategic Alliances, where he will initially focus on scaling partnerships with Healius Ltd and Grupo Fleury, two recently announced C2N partnerships that are bringing the company’s Precivity™-related blood biomarkers to the forefront of memory and dementia care in Australia and Brazil. He also will expand C2N’s footprint in other international markets and deepen relations with leading biopharmaceutical companies developing next generation therapies for neurodegeneration. Connell joins C2N from AstraZeneca where he supported precision medicine pipeline strategies as Senior Director, Computational Pathology Strategy-Oncology R&D. Prior to AstraZeneca, he led Biogen’s diagnostic strategy in the Intercontinental region, including Alzheimer’s disease launch readiness initiatives in Asia, Oceania, Latin America, and the Middle East. Connell brings substantial precision medicine and personalized healthcare commercial experience to C2N, having worked in global, regional, and field commercial roles at Roche, Novartis, Monogram Biosciences, and Cardinal Health. Connell holds a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering degree from Washington University in St. Louis and earned an MBA from HEC Paris.

We are thrilled that they see the same vision we see and are dedicating the next phase of their careers to enable us to achieve our goals and ambitions.
