GenMark Diagnostics Appoints Stephen T. Worland, Ph.D. To Board Of Directors

GenMark Diagnostics, Inc. (NASDAQ: GNMK), a provider of automated, multiplex molecular diagnostic testing systems, announced today that Dr. Stephen T. Worland has been appointed to GenMark's Board of Directors.

Stephen Worland has extensive experience in global technology, infectious disease and healthcare businesses and is currently President and Chief Executive Officer and a director of eFFECTOR Therapeutics, Inc., a start-up stage company focused on new treatments for cancer. Dr. Worland was President and Chief Executive Officer and a director of Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company which discovered and developed treatments for Hepatitis C and cancer, from August 2007 until the company’s acquisition by Roche in November 2011. Dr. Worland joined Anadys in 2001 and served in a number of executive roles prior to being named CEO, including President, Pharmaceuticals, and Chief Scientific Officer. Dr. Worland began his healthcare industry career in 1988 at Agouron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and remained with the company through its successful commercialization of an HIV protease inhibitor and successive acquisitions by Warner-Lambert and Pfizer. During this period he held a number of positions, including Vice President, Antiviral Research and Director, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. Dr. Worland was a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Fellow in Molecular Biology at Harvard University from 1985 to 1988. He received his B.S. with highest honors in Biological Chemistry from the University of Michigan and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley.

"We are delighted to have Steve Worland join our Board. In addition to his extensive operational experience in the Pharmaceutical industry, both in small and large companies, Steve’s deep knowledge of molecular biology, specifically as it relates to infectious disease, cancer and related pharmacogenomics, will be invaluable as GenMark continues to build its own molecular diagnostics franchise in these areas. Steve’s skill set and experience complement an already strong Board that is focused on building a high value business in the global molecular diagnostics market,” commented Christopher Gleeson, GenMark's Chairman.
