Intercell AG announced today the appointment of its new Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The company feels honored that the following academic scientists have accepted the invitation to serve in Intercell's new SAB: Rafi Ahmed (Emory University School of Medicine), Hubert Blum (University of Freiburg), Stanley N. Cohen (Stanford University), Franz Xaver Heinz (University of Vienna), Stefan H.E. Kaufmann (Max-Planck-Institute for Infection Biology), Staffan Normark (Karolinska Institute) and Hans Wigzell (Karolinska Institute).

Throughout Intercell's next growth stage, the new members will support the company with their broad knowledge and unique expertise in the fields of infectious diseases, microbiology, immunology and molecular biology as well as their worldwide networks. The new SAB will follow the original SAB that has been pivotal to launch the company eight years ago and that has accompanied Intercell on its way from a university spin-off to an internationally acknowledged vaccine player in the biotech arena.

The former SAB, chaired by Intercell's co-founder Max Birnstiel, included Hubert Blum, David Hirsh, Staffan Normark, Hamilton Smith, Hans Strander and Charles Weissmann. They have added much to Intercell's credibility, helped to implement high scientific standards and supported the company in finding its strategic focus. The new SAB will also give assistance to Intercell by offering the advice of outstanding scientists, with the company's primary focus on vaccines and immunotherapeutic treatments against infectious diseases.

Intercell's CSO, Alexander von Gabain, states: "I would like to thank the members of the founding SAB for their long-time commitment to our company and their outstanding contribution to create an excellent position in science and product development. I welcome the new SAB members who perfectly match the scientific profile that we need to develop the company into its next stage."

Max Birnstiel, co-founder and Chair of the founding SAB, states: "I am delighted that the new SAB members will continue our mission to support building excellence in biotech. Their competence, skills, and reputation is optimal for reaching Intercell's strategic goal to fight infectious diseases and also to achieving state of the art vaccine technologies."
