Chad Rubin

GAITHERSBURG, Md., April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NexImmune, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEXI), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing a novel approach to immunotherapy designed to orchestrate a targeted immune response by directing the function of antigen-specific T cells, today announced that Chad Rubin has been appointed to the newly created position of Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs. Mr. Rubin will be responsible for all corporate communications, along with involvement in investor and capital markets activities. He joins NexImmune with more than 20 years of experience in investor relations, investment banking and capital markets within the biotechnology sector.

“Chad is an important addition to our senior leadership team,” said Scott Carmer, Chief Executive Officer of NexImmune. “We welcome his breadth of experience in the biotech industry, well-established relationships with the financial community and deep understanding of financial communications and capital markets. He served as a valuable strategic consultant to the company for six years as part of the Solebury Trout, and we look forward to his continued contribution as we continue to evolve NexImmune from a private, development-stage company to a public, clinically driven organization advancing cell-mediated immunotherapy drug candidates for the benefit of patients facing a number of difficult-to-treat diseases.”

Mr. Rubin joins NexImmune from Solebury Trout, a leading investor relations, strategic advisory and capital markets advisor in the life sciences sector, where he was a Managing Director. He most recently served as co-head of the Trout team that provides strategic counsel on investor relations and communication strategies, while also serving as an advisor on capital formation transactions for both private and public biotechnology companies. Mr. Rubin also sits on the Board of Trustees for the Histiocytosis Association, an organization addressing the needs of patients and families dealing with histiocytic disorders and leading the search for a cure.

“This is an exciting time to join NexImmune. The Company’s proprietary nanotechnology platform has the potential to positively impact patients facing cancer, autoimmune disorders and infectious diseases. I am honored to be able to contribute to the team as we advance our first two product candidates in Phase 1/2 clinical trials,” said Mr. Rubin.

About NexImmune

NexImmune is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing a novel approach to immunotherapy designed to employ the body’s own T cells to generate a specific, potent, and durable immune response. The backbone of NexImmune’s approach is its proprietary Artificial Immune Modulation (AIM™) nanoparticle technology platform. The AIM technology enables NexImmune to construct nanoparticles that function as synthetic dendritic cells capable of directing a specific T cell-mediated immune response. NexImmune’s precision technology and unique scientific approach offer promise in restoring hope for patients suffering from cancer, autoimmune disorders, and infectious diseases by directing specific immune responses to attack or moderate cells and other infectious agents causing the underlying disease.

NexImmune’s two lead programs, NEXI-001 and NEXI-002, are in Phase 1/2 clinical trials for the treatment of relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) after allogeneic stem cell transplantation and multiple myeloma refractory to at least 3 prior lines of therapy, respectively. In these clinical trials, AIM constructed nanoparticles employ natural biology to engage, activate, and expand endogenous T cells in ways that combine the anti-tumor attributes of antigen-specific precision, potency, and long-term persistence with reduced potential for off-target toxicities.
