Advaxis, Inc., (OTCBB: ADXS), a leader in developing the next generation of immunotherapies for cancer and infectious diseases, has appointed Diana Moore as Director, Investor Relations & Business Development.
Diana is a graduate of Princeton University where she was a Stanley J. Seeger Fellow in Hellenic Studies. Additionally, Diana holds a Masters of Contemporary Art from University of Manchester, UK where she graduated with distinction. Her thesis concentrated on the Public Perception of Biotechnology in Contemporary Art & Literature.
Prior to joining Advaxis, Ms. Moore conducted fund raising efforts for several non-profits including the D&R Greenway Land Trust where she currently curates their art galleries.
Diana has spent two years working at Advaxis in a number of capacities and has developed a keen understanding of the Company’s technology and has been able to combine that knowledge with her strong communications skills. She is also a member of the National Investor Relations Institute.
Conrad Mir has left Advaxis to pursue new interests. “We are grateful for his many contributions. Conrad worked hard to build Advaxis’ share ownership and share volume during one of the most difficult times for the economy in general and biotech in particular. He helped raise millions of dollars and provided both valuable service and access to many new investors. We deeply appreciate and thank Conrad for all his efforts,” said Tom Moore, Chairman and CEO.
Going forward Diana will focus on Investor Relations and Corporate Communications and report to Mark Rosenblum, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Moore and Mr. Rosenblum will concentrate on fundraising activities and commercial collaborations.
“Diana continues to refine our communications platform. Among other projects, she is leading the creation of a new "Chairman's Blog" written by Tom Moore and other members of the Advaxis team, to talk about the field of immunotherapy and Advaxis’ technology. It will be posted on our website in the coming weeks,” commented Rosenblum.
