AffyImmune Therapeutics Announces Hiring of Matt Britz as Senior Vice President of Business Development

AffyImmune Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical stage biotechnology company finding safe, effective ways to use CAR-T cells against solid cancers, announced today the addition of Matt Britz to its management team as its Senior Vice President of Business Development.

“Matt brings deep industry experience, a can-do attitude, and proven management skills to AffyImmune,” said Eric von Hofe, President and COO. “His perspective will be vital as we continue growing, and we’re thrilled to have him join us.”

Mr. Britz added, “AffyImmune’s scientific approach, particularly their affinity tuning technology, has opened up new novel targets that would otherwise be inaccessible. Combined with the ability to track CAR T localization at tumor sites, I believe AffyImmune has answered a number of key questions holding CAR T therapies back from making progress against solid tumors. I am excited to help them share those answers with the world.”

Matt joins AffyImmune from Minerva Biotechnologies, where he was a Senior Vice President and the Head of Business Development. Before Minerva, Matt held consulting and industry roles, including as the Director of Business Development at Envoy Therapeutics during its acquisition by Takeda. He received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and Biology from MIT and an M.A. in Biology and MBA from Washington University in St. Louis.
