BALTIMORE, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CMTP today announced the promotion of Donna Messner, PhD, and Els Houtsmuller, PhD, who will both take on the roles of Vice President and Senior Research Director. 

"CMTP continues to find new opportunities to work with private, nonprofit and public partners to ensure that patients, clinicians, policymakers and payers have the evidence they need to make informed health decisions," said Dr. Tunis. "Drs. Messner and Houtsmuller have demonstrated impressive leadership of several critical projects, and we look forward to their expanded role in guiding and managing CMTP."
