Northstar Neuroscience Clinical & Regulatory Head Resigns

Northstar Neuroscience, the Seattle-based maker of a electrical brain stimulation device for depression, said today that Nawzer Mehta has resigned his job as vice president of clinical and regulatory affairs to pursue another opportunity. Mehta will be replaced by Deborah Sheffield, the company’s director of regulatory affairs. Northstar has switched its strategy to concentrate on depression after its device failed to restore arm movement for stroke patients in a large clinical trial.
