Former Millennium CEO to head EnVivo

Deborah Dunsire, who in May resigned suddenly as Millennium Pharmaceutical’s chief executive, will return to the biotechnology industry to lead EnVivo Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Dunsire, 51, one of the best-known women in the life-sciences field, said she will start in mid-August as chief executive of EnVivo, a Watertown maker of drugs to treat central nervous system disorders. Its lead drug candidate, which is entering late-stage clinical trials, seeks to improve cognition for patients suffering from schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease.
