What Our Colleagues Have To Say

Danielle Evans-Whiting

Director, Contracts Administration

"I have been with IMV since nearly the beginning, and I have seen the Company grow and evolve tremendously over this last decade. Our current team is the strongest that I have ever seen, and it is a joy to come to work with such dedicated and enthusiastic individuals. While we are all working on our different projects and different pathways, at the end of the day, we are all able to work together for the good of the Company and, ultimately, the patients who will benefit from the work that we do."

Genevieve Weir, PhD

Director of Business Development

“I worked in the Research Team at IMV when it was a start-up company, and I participated in developing the science that laid the groundwork for our core technology. Returning to IMV in a Business Development role years later, with the objective of finding collaborations and advancing the science, has been greatly fulfilling. As the company grows it hasn’t lost the sense of engagement, inspiration and commitment that will lead to real solutions for cancer treatments.”
