My name is Hugo Peris.

I grew up in Barcelona, Spain. Between 2008 and 2015 I lived in Auckland, Sydney, Chicago and Shanghai. Since August 2015 I am based in beautiful San Francisco.

Between January 2011 and May 2015 I was responsible for business development at Luqa Pharmaceuticals, a China-based and China-focused specialty pharmaceutical company, where I serve on the Board. In May 2015, Luqa announced the completion of a Series A financing for US$15M led by Morningside Ventures.

I also serve as a non-executive member of the Board of Laboratorios SALVAT, a privately-held Spanish pharmaceutical company of which I am part of the 4th generation.

In October 2014 I started Loop Therapeutics, a pharmaceutical company developing leading products for the prevention of apoptosis.

In February 2016 I started Spiral Therapeutics, a late pre-clinical stage company developing first-in-class products targeting inner ear disorders.

In May 2015 I was awarded Top Next Generation Entrepreneur by Campden FB.
