They join us at an exciting time as we advance our lead drug candidate into key clinical programs in non-small cell lung cancer and pursue partnership opportunities for our oncology platform and newly licensed gene therapy technology for diabetes,” Genprex CEO Rodney Varner said in the news release. “Catherine and Michael each have significant biotechnology company experience that enhances our capabilities and will be instrumental in advancing our programs. Their combined expertise in business development, corporate strategy, manufacturing, clinical trial strategy and operations and regulatory affairs will be of great value as we build Genprex into a leading gene therapy company bringing new treatment options to patients in need.

About Genprex, Inc.
Genprex, Inc. is a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing treatments for cancer and other serious diseases. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new treatment options for large patient populations with cancer and other serious diseases who currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to in-license and develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches for patients with cancer and other serious diseases. The company’s lead product candidate, Oncoprex(TM) immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”), uses the company’s unique, proprietary platform which delivers cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. In January 2020, the FDA granted Fast Track Designation for Oncoprex in combination with AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso(R) for the treatment of NSCLC.
