HALIFAX, Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ - ImmunoVaccine Technologies Inc. (IVT), a vaccine development company, announced today the appointment of former senator, Michael Kirby, as the new Board of Directors Chair. Michael Kirby succeeds the late Dr. Warrick Kimmins, who provided exemplary leadership during his tenure and was instrumental in spinning out IVT's novel technology from Dalhousie University.

"I am passionate about advancing health care and am delighted to be part of such a fast-growing biotech company," said former senator Michael Kirby. "IVT has an impressive track record and its patented technology holds tremendous potential to improve vaccines worldwide. "

"Michael Kirby is an internationally respected leader in health care," said Dr. Randal Chase, IVT President and CEO. "His strategic advice will be invaluable, as we enter the next phase of development with the expectation of beginning a new Phase 1 clinical trial in 2009."

The Honourable Michael Kirby has had a distinguished career spanning academia, business, provincial, and federal public service. Most recently, he was appointed, by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, to be the first Chair of the Mental Health Commission of Canada. He also serves on several boards including The Bank of Nova Scotia, Extendicare, Ontario Energy Savings Income Trust, MDC Partners, and Indigo Books and Music.

Senator Kirby was past chair of the Standing Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology. He has been a member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, Luxemburg, Austria, and the Club of Rome. He was also a full-time professor in the School of Business Administration and the School of Public Administration at Dalhousie University.
