Date:2/23/2012

MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Telome Health, Inc.™, a privately held biotechnology company focused on the role of telomere biology in human health, has announced that co-founder and Nobel Laureate Elizabeth Blackburn has been awarded Innovator of the Year by Silicon Valley Business Journal.

"I am very pleased and honored to receive this award, especially coming from the heart of innovation, Silicon Valley, and to acknowledge the efforts of my amazing colleagues," said Dr. Blackburn.

Dr. Blackburn is an internationally recognized thought leader and expert on the biology of telomeres. She was awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology along with Drs. Carol Greider and Jack Szostak for her work in this field. She co-founded Telome Health in 2010 with colleagues Calvin Harley, Elissa Epel and Jue Lin who also recognized experts in the field of telomere biology. Dr. Blackburn is Morris Herzstein Professor of Biology and Physiology at the University of California at San Francisco. She also serves on the Board and is a Scientific Advisory for Telome Health.

"We are thrilled that Dr. Blackburn has been awarded the Innovator of The Year by The Silicon Valley and San Jose Business Journal," noted Daniel Hunt, CEO of Telome Health. "This is just one of the many notable and prestigious awards that she has received for her significant contributions to the field of telomere biology. We are proud to work with Elizabeth to develop a diagnostic test that will further empower individuals and physicians to manage disease risk using a more proactive, personalized approach."

Telome Health, Inc. is developing a proprietary assay that measures telomere length called the TeloTest™ that it anticipates launching in 2012. Telomeres are repetitive DNA sequences at the ends of human chromosomes that protect them from unraveling similar to the plastic tips (aglets) located on the ends of shoelace
