Punit Dhillon, OncoSec's President and CEO, said, "We are pleased that Brian will join  our management team. He brings a proven track record of medical device design and technical leadership experience, with the ability to design, manage and coordinate the development of medical devices from concept to production. Brian will be instrumental in developing OncoSec's next generation OMS products."

OncoSec's minimally invasive ElectroOncology therapies utilize its proprietary electroporation delivery system, called the OncoSec Medical System (OMS), which applies short electrical impulses to selectively targeted tumors and tissue in order to significantly increase the ability of anti-cancer chemotherapeutic or biologic agents to enter into cells. These treatments selectively destroy cancer cells while preserving healthy tissue. They optimize required dosage and potentially reduce treatment and post-treatment costs.

Brian McCluskey, Executive Director, Engineering

Mr. McCluskey has more than 30 years of electrical engineering experience, in which he has spent the last 20 years developing software and hardware for devices used for medical and research purposes. Through this, he has managed successful submissions for FDA 510(k) approvals, as well as, CE marks for marketing in Europe. Mr. McCluskey was recently with Teledyne RD Instruments (TRDI), a leader in the design and manufacture of Doppler instrumentation, for which he managed custom production for TRDI clients. He was also engineering manager for Digirad Corporation, a leading manufacturer of solid-state gamma cameras and cardiology imaging software, for which he managed product development from early conception to product release leading to multi-million dollar revenue in his first year.

Mr. McCluskey will lead OncoSec's team of engineers and manufacturing operations as well as work closely with the company's Quality Assurance department.
