Meet our new CEO
Ed Gillis headshot
Good news for Vasalgel! Ed Gillis has joined the team as CEO of Revolution Contraceptives, LLC, the social venture company that is developing Vasalgel under the umbrella of Parsemus Foundation. Ed has a history of leadership in early-stage medical companies, most recently as CEO and CTO at ReVENT Medical, Inc. -- a company he founded.

"We were thrilled to find and attract Ed," said Elaine Lissner, founder and trustee of Parsemus Foundation. "He is a perfect fit -- not only does he have extensive experience getting products to market, but he understands the importance of better male contraception and supports the social mission of the organization."

Ed has previously held senior-level executive positions in engineering, research and development, manufacturing, and product development for a number of medical product companies. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in biology and Master of Science degree in plastics engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. ( See biography here)

"Vasalgel will be a revolutionary advancement in family planning," Ed said. "I'm committed to ensuring that men across the world will have better options to take control of their reproductive future."
