Northwest Biotherapeutics Announces Change and Expansion of Management Team
Date:6/8/2011

both in the US and abroad (in Asia, Europe and Israel), are at the forefront of clinical trials and early commercialization.  Ms. Powers has served for years on a number of related boards, including the M2Gen Board of the Moffitt Cancer Center, the Board of the Trudeau Institute (a world leader in immunology research) and others.  As Chairman of NWBT, she has brought her lengthy experience to bear in helping to shape NWBT's overall strategy and programs.  As CEO, she will now undertake operational responsibilities in addition to continuing her duties as Chairman.

Dr. Alton Boynton is the scientific founder of NWBT, and was the first in the world to conduct a clinical trial with dendritic cells – the master cells of the immune system, which are the cells used in NWBT's DCVax® products.  During the 1990s, when little was known about dendritic cells and their roles, Dr. Boynton's research lab was an early leader in identifying the important clinical capabilities of the dendritic cells and their potential for fighting cancer.  Within this academic setting, during the 1990s Dr. Boynton treated over 100 prostate cancer patients with the DCVax® technology, prior to commencing formal clinical trials in the Company.  Since that time,  Dr. Boynton served as the Chief Scientific Officer of the Company until 2007, at which time he became CEO.  Prior to founding NWBT, Dr. Boynton headed the Molecular Oncology research lab at the Pacific Northwest Research Foundation (the original foundation of Bill Hutchinson, from which the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center was spun off), focusing on dendritic cells, and he established and headed the Molecular Oncology research department at Northwest Hospital in Seattle (where the first clinical trial with dendritic cells took place in 1995).  Earlier in his career, Dr. Boynton was Associate Director of the University of Hawaii Cancer Center, and a professor of Genetics and Molec
