Date:2/14/2011

p>In conjunction with this financing, James Niedel, M.D., Ph.D.,Managing Director of New Leaf Venture Partners, and Arthur M. Pappas, Managing Partner of Pappas Ventures, will join Chimerix's Board of Directors.  Graham Crooke, M.D., of Helix Ventures will retire from the Chimerix Board.  The total number of Chimerix Board members is eight.

"It's rare to find drugs in development with excellent safety and efficacy to treat life-threatening infections in children and adults.  It's equally rare to find a management team with the experience, accomplishments and expertise necessary to progress those drugs through FDA approval and into clinical practice.  In Chimerix, we found both.  I am pleased to join a fine group of investors and board directors in support of those efforts," said Dr. Niedel.

"We are pleased to support Chimerix's important product development programs," said Mr. Pappas.  "We look forward in particular to meaningful clinical results from CMX001 during 2011 and 2012."

"Chimerix has established a cutting-edge portfolio of novel antiviral medicines with the potential to transform the treatment of certain viruses and address critically-ill patients for whom there would otherwise be little or no hope.  We are delighted that such an outstanding group of new investors has joined us in supporting Chimerix in the development of these compounds," said Seth Rudnick, M.D, Venture Partner, Canaan Partners, on behalf of the Chimerix Board.
