Nordic Nanovector has announced that its Nomination Committee has nominated Dr Karin Meyer for election as a Non-executive Director at the company’s Annual General Meeting.

The company also notes that Gisela Schwab, who has served as a Non-executive Director on the Board of Nordic Nanovector since March 2015 has, due to increased workload, responsibilities and competing priorities, decided not to stand for re-election at the upcoming AGM.

I am delighted to welcome Karin, who brings extensive experience in key areas that will be invaluable with regards to the future development of the company,” says Jan H.
