Intradigm Announces Addition of Samuel Zalipsky to Management Team

PALO ALTO, CA | Posted on May 30th, 2007

Dr. Zalipsky comes to Intradigm following an eight-year tenure with
ALZA Corporation, a member of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies,
during which he established himself as a leading expert on drug delivery
systems. His broad drug delivery expertise spans several important areas
including chemistry of peptides, polymers for bio-medical application,
bioconjugates with drugs, peptides/proteins, saccharides, lipids/liposomes,
and nanoparticles. He is widely regarded as an active researcher and
inventor, particularly in the areas of macromolecular and nanoparticular
carrier-mediated delivery.

At ALZA, Dr. Zalipsky established and managed programs focused on
delivery of biopharmaceuticals, PEGylated proteins, and targeted delivery
of liposomes. Prior to his work with ALZA, he held key scientific positions
with SEQUUS Pharmaceuticals and Enzon Inc., while also serving as a
visiting associate professor in the chemistry department of Rutgers
University. In his new role, Dr. Zalipsky will spearhead the continued
development of Intradigm's proprietary nanoparticle-based RNAi delivery
technology, as well as its novel RNAi therapeutic formulations. He will
also be responsible for overseeing the company's work in the areas of new
technology development and new technology in-licensing.

"While Samuel possesses impressive experience in the biotechnology and
pharmaceutical industry, it is the relevance of his expertise as it relates
to Intradigm's RNAi drug delivery focus that makes him such an ideal
addition to our team," said Mohammad Azab, M.D., president and chief
executive officer of Intradigm. "We are very happy to welcome Samuel to
Intradigm and look forward to the critical contributions he will make to
the company and our efforts to bring innovative RNAi therapeutics to the
market."
