Genticel has appointed a new vice-president to the supervisory board.
Dr Gerald Moeller, PhD has over 35 years experience in the pharmaceutical and diagnostics industry. He has been an investment adviser at HBM Partners in Switzerland since 2002 and chairs the supervisory boards of a number of health sector companies, including 4Sigma Ltd, Definiens AG, Invendo-Medical GmbH and MorphoSys AG.
