ImmunoGen, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMGN), a biotechnology company that develops targeted antibody-based anticancer products using its antibody expertise and Targeted Antibody Payload (TAP) technology, today announced the appointment of Theresa G. Wingrove, Ph.D. as Vice President of Regulatory Affairs. Dr. Wingrove will be responsible for leading the regulatory development of the Company's product candidates and directing the regulatory submissions prepared by ImmunoGen in support of the Company's own programs and those of its partners. Dr. Wingrove reports to Daniel Junius, President and Chief Executive Officer.

"Theresa brings to ImmunoGen a wealth of regulatory experience in the development of new healthcare products," commented Mr. Junius. "Her addition to our team is particularly timely in light of our programs to aggressively advance our lead compound - IMGN901 - and our expectation that we'll double the number of compounds we have in the clinic by early 2012."

Dr. Wingrove joins ImmunoGen with over twenty years of regulatory and clinical management experience in the healthcare industry. Before joining ImmunoGen, she was the vice president of regulatory and clinical affairs at Histogenics, where her responsibilities included authoring and gaining approval of a SPA for a Phase III trial for a novel biologic and other regulatory responsibilities in the US and Europe. Prior to that, she was the senior director of regulatory and clinical affairs at MediSpectra, where she was responsible for the full spectrum of regulatory support - from start of clinical testing through marketing approval - for a novel cancer diagnostic product. Prior to joining MediSpectra, Dr. Wingrove was at Pfizer-Infusaid for over ten years, during which time she executed the clinical and regulatory programs associated with the company's combination products. She holds a BS in Biochemistry from Brown University and a doctorate in Biochemical Toxicology from the University of Rochester.
