Christine Debouck, PhD, President of Ardennes Biosciences LLC and formerly Senior VP in R&D at GlaxoSmithKline, is renowned for her expertise in target validation, disease knowledge and compound characterizations as well as for her broad scientific applications of biotechnology, genomics and biomarker discovery in pre-clinical and clinical development, and biomarker evaluation with an emphasis in oncology and infectious diseases. Dr. Debouck brings 24 years of experience in directing creative science in diverse areas of research.

Jeff Boyd, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer and Sr. VP at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, has an international reputation as one of the leading scientists in the study of molecular genetics of women's cancers. Dr. Boyd was named Distinguished Cancer Scholar by the Georgia Cancer Coalition. His long-term research focus has studied molecular genetics of ovarian cancer with emphasis on hereditary predisposition.

Linda Matsuuchi, PhD, Associate Director of the Life Sciences Institute at the University of British Columbia, has a distinguished research career focused on intracellular trafficking and cell signaling of specific membrane receptors on the cell surface of B lymphocytes, the source of antibody production.

"We are pleased to assemble such an incredibly talented team of scientists to serve on our SAB and to participate in target validation on our ovarian cancer therapeutic project. Their active participation provides Abeome with valuable expertise in pre-clinical and clinical trials, unparalleled knowledge of ovarian cancer pathology, and years of immunology experience specific to monoclonal antibody development," states Abeome CEO, Mike Wanner.
