“This is an exciting time to join ADC Therapeutics. As the Company prepares its first BLA submission and continues to lead the development and commercialization of a robust pipeline of ADCs, I look forward to contributing to the Company’s success as we work to fill the significant unmet need for novel therapies to treat patients suffering with hematological cancers and solid tumors,” said Ms. Creel.
