    Recently, Dean Tozer accepted the position of chief commercial officer with Cytomedix, a biotechnology firm based in Baltimore, Maryland. Earlier, he served Shire Regenerative Medicine as a vice president of corporate development. In that capacity, he helped the company become one of the first international regenerative-medicine corporations. During his tenure there, Dean Tozer helped craft both divisional and corporate strategy to guide both organic and transactional growth. Prior to joining Shire, he was chosen by a venture capital company to launch a business called Advanced BioHealing, Inc., which Shire later purchased for $750 million. In terms of industry organizations, Dean Tozer was a founding board member and officer (Treasurer) of the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (ARM). The organization operates out of Washington, D.C., where it reaches out to important policy makers to inform them about modern advances in regenerative health care. During Mr. Tozer's three year leadership tenure with ARM, the organization developed effective relationships with the United States Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and other key federal and state policy stakeholders.
