Date:6/25/2008

REHOVOT, Israel and JERSEY CITY, New Jersey, June 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Rosetta Genomics, Ltd. (Nasdaq: ROSG), announced today that Tamir Kazaz, the Company's CFO for the last two and a half years, has resigned to pursue other interests. The Company has begun a search for a new Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Kazaz is expected to leave in the second half of 2008, and will support the company in its search and during the transition of his duties.

The planned acquisition of Parkway Clinical Laboratories and the anticipated launch of its first three products in the United States will expand the Company's focus from R&D into a full commercial entity. With the buildup of the commercial activities in the United States, the Company expects to increase its senior management presence in the United States.

"The entire staff at Rosetta Genomics thanks Tamir for the service that he has provided to the Company over his tenure and wishes him well in the future," said Amir Avniel, President and CEO of Rosetta Genomics.
