Mr. Mills is currently an independent venture capitalist with over 30 years of experience in venture capital, and now serves as Chairman of the Board of Managers of Ascension Health Ventures III, LLC.   Since 1981, he has served in a partner role at Advent International, Ampersand Ventures, EGS Healthcare Capital Partners and The Venture Capital Fund of New England.  Mr. Mills has been a member of the Stereotaxis Board since June 2000 and has served as Chairman of the Company's Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Strategy & Technology Committee.  Mr. Mills received his A.B. in Chemistry, cum laude, from Princeton University, his S.M. in Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his M.S. in Management from MIT's Sloan School of Management.

Mills III, Chairman of the Board of Directors.  "Fred has helped guide the Company through various business cycles with prudence and with our long-term strategy in mind.  We look forward to continuing to work with Fred and to his continued contributions."

"My decision to step down as Chairman of Stereotaxis will allow the Company to recruit new experienced talent at the Board leadership level.  I plan to devote more time to activities which I believe can enhance shareholder value going forward," said Mr. Middleton.
