At Vitae, he worked closely with the CEO and the board on the successful sale of the clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company to Allergan (NYSE:AGN) for $639 million, a 159% premium to its then publicly-traded market value. Prior to those roles, he served as corporate secretary for Medgenics Inc, a clinical-stage, publicly-traded biotech company and he spent 10 years at Shire Pharmaceuticals. During his tenure at Shire, Applebaum helped to build the company’s global central nervous system-focused footprint where he led the strategy and execution of its legal, regulatory, and commercial functions. He held several senior roles at Shire including general manager of International ADHD, global head of regulatory affairs and global neuroscience business unit head. Before Shire, for seven years he also had roles of increasing responsibility in the legal department of Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY). “I am excited to work with Raj and the top-notch team he has assembled at Seelos,” Applebaum said. “I look forward to helping them advance their encouraging pipeline of programs focused on unmet needs in CNS disorders and rare diseases."

He is a member of the Pennsylvania and New Jersey bars and is a certified public accountant. Seelos is focused on the development and advancement of novel therapeutics to address unmet medical needs for the benefit of patients with central nervous system disorders and other rare disorders.
