AbCellera Announces Changes to Its Board of Directors


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, December 7, 2021 - AbCellera (Nasdaq: ABCL), a technology company with a centralized operating system for next-generation antibody discovery, today announced changes to its Board of Directors with the appointment of Andrew W. Lo, Ph.D., as an independent director and the resignation of John Hamer, Ph.D. Changes are effective immediately.

Dr. Lo has developed new financial engineering tools and business models for drug and device development and healthcare delivery, statistical methods for incorporating patient preferences into the drug approval process, and machine-learning for predicting clinical trial outcomes. He will serve on the Audit and Compensation Committees of the Board of Directors.

"Andrew is a distinguished economist, professor, author, and strategist whose work in connecting financial structures, business models, and biomedical innovation has resulted in exciting new approaches that help bring treatments to patients faster," said Carl Hansen, Ph.D., CEO, President, and Chairperson of AbCellera. "We welcome him to our board and look forward to working with him as we continue to build a large and diversified portfolio of positions in the next generation of antibody therapies, driving long-term value for patients, partners, and our shareholders."

"I'm delighted and honored to be joining AbCellera's board. Their unique partnership-based business model draws on key financial insights to build value," said Dr. Lo. "I look forward to working with them to help them realize the enormous impact their approach can have on the industry and, ultimately, on patients around the world."

Dr. Lo is a cofounder and director of BridgeBio Pharma, a director of Atomwise and Roivant Sciences, a cofounder and chairman of QLS Advisors, and a member of the advisory boards of NCATS and the American Cancer Society's BrightEdge Impact Fund. He is currently the Charles E. and Susan T. Harris Professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management, director of MIT's Laboratory for Financial Engineering, and principal investigator at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. Dr. Lo was named one of TIME's "100 most influential people in the world."

Dr. Hamer, Managing Partner at DCVC Bio, joined AbCellera's Board in 2018 and has served on the Audit and Compensation Committees.

"John has been a valued investor and director for AbCellera. He recognized the company's potential early and brought a unique combination of scientific, operational, and financial expertise that was instrumental in getting us to where we are today," said Dr. Hansen. "It has been a distinct pleasure working with him over the last three years. We thank him for his guidance and wish him the best as he continues to find and build new companies at the interface of computation and biotechnology."
