Most recently, McDonough served as President of Cytyc Development Corp., where he was responsible for corporate strategy, acquisitions and venture investments. During his four-year tenure at the leading medical diagnostic and devices company, Cytyc Corporation grew -- primarily through acquisitions -- from a single product company with annual revenues of $300 million to a multiple product company with revenues of $750 million. In 2007, Cytyc was acquired by Hologic, Inc. for $6.3 billion. Prior to his tenure at Cytyc, McDonough served as CEO at a number of technology companies, including SoundBite Communications, Workgroup Technology Corporation and Easel Corporation.

"T2 Biosystems' novel technology has the potential to revolutionize medical diagnostics and dramatically improve patient care by enabling immediate, accurate testing for almost any health condition, in nearly any setting," said John McDonough, CEO of T2 Biosystems. "I am honored to join the T2 Biosystems' team of talented scientists, world-class founders and advisors to drive achievement of the Company's key goals in 2008 to produce a prototype instrument; identify and progress multiple diagnostic tests to the preclinical stage of development; continue to build its management team; and, pursue value-building collaborations with corporate partners."

T2 Biosystems is developing the next generation of medical diagnostic products through its proprietary technology, which combines nanotechnology and the miniaturization of proven MRI technology to develop rapid, accurate and portable diagnostics. T2 Biosystems' technology has been validated in multiple published journal articles and has shown to accurately analyze viruses, bacteria, proteins, hormones, DNA, small molecules and other diagnostic targets. The Company is developing a pipeline of diagnostic products based on its technology, including devices for hospitals, diagnostic laboratories and medical offices, as well as individual patients.
