Pacific Biosciences Appoints Jonas Korlach, Ph.D. Chief Scientific Officer

Monday, July 16, 2012

MENLO PARK, Calif., July 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (Nasdaq:PACB) provider of the PacBio® RS High Resolution Genetic Analyzer, today announced the appointment of Jonas Korlach, Ph.D., as Chief Scientific Officer. PacBio’s previous CSO, Eric Schadt, Ph.D., will remain a key scientific advisor to the company in addition to his primary role as Professor and Chair of the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences, and Director of the Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Dr. Korlach was previously Scientific Fellow at Pacific Biosciences, supporting commercial development of the PacBio® RS system and performing research aimed at developing new applications for Single Molecule Real-Time (SMRT®) technologies, such as DNA base modification detection recently launched by the company. He co-invented the SMRT technology with Stephen Turner, Ph.D., Pacific Biosciences Founder and Chief Technology Officer, when the two were graduate students at Cornell University. Dr. Korlach joined Pacific Biosciences as the company’s eighth employee in 2004. Previously, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Cornell University. Dr. Korlach is the recipient of multiple grants, an inventor on 28 issued U.S. patents, and an author of numerous scientific studies on the principles
and applications of SMRT technology, including publications in Nature, Science and PNAS. He received both his Ph.D. and his M.S. degrees in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology from Cornell, and received M.S. and B.A. degrees in Biological Sciences from Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany.

“Jonas has played leading roles in the transition of the SMRT technology from proof-of-concept to commercialization for DNA sequencing, and we are delighted to recognize his contributions with this appointment,” said Mike Hunkapiller, President and CEO at Pacific Biosciences. “We are grateful to Eric for his previous scientific leadership, and look forward to continuing to work closely with him in his roles as an advisor and collaborator to help shape the future of genetic analysis.”
