SEATTLE, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Omeros Corporation today announced the appointment of Stephen R. Murray, M.D., Ph.D. as Vice President of Clinical Development.

"In addition, we have several preclinical central nervous system and inflammation programs that have the potential to address significant unmet medical needs. This is an important time for Omeros and I'm excited to play a role here."
