Epigenomics AG: Member of the Executive Board and Chief Scientific Officer Andrew Lukowiak Resigns
Berlin (Germany), May 19, 2023 -The Member of the Executive Board, President, and Chief Scientific Officer of Epigenomics AG (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX, OTCQX: EPGNY; the “Company”), Dr. Andrew Lukowiak, and the Company’s Supervisory Board today agreed on his resignation from the Company and the Executive Board effective May 31, 2023. Between now and the resignation date Dr. Lukowiak will continue to support the Company’s restructuring efforts in coordination with the Supervisory Board. The Company continues to be committed to maximizing the value of its technology through corporate partnering, licensing and/or asset sales.
Dr. Helge Lubenow, Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board of Epigenomics AG, thanked Andrew Lukowiak on behalf of the entire Supervisory Board: “Andrew Lukowiak has very successfully led the development and pre-clinical validation of our “Next-Gen” colorectal cancer screening test over the last 15 months and has driven the process with his experience and strategic vision.”
Dr. Lukowiak has been a Member of the Executive Board, President, and CSO of Epigenomics AG since December 2021. His broad contributions across the organization have been instrumental in furthering the Company’s colorectal cancer diagnostics’ program, including his systematic optimization of R&D structure and processes, as well as his execution of complementary partnerships. However, in recent months, in the current capital market environment, the Company has been unable to raise additional capital to secure funding for the FDA pivotal study of the “Next-Gen” test. In response, the restructuring of the Company was initiated on February 15, 2023 to minimize costs. Against this backdrop, the resignation of Dr. Andrew Lukowiak now also takes place.
The Supervisory Board will decide on the further composition of the Executive Board in due course.
Epigenomics AG is a molecular diagnostics company focused on blood testing for the early detection of cancer. Based on its proprietary biomarker technology for the detection of methylated DNA, Epigenomics developed blood tests for various cancer indications with high unmet medical need.
