Emergent BioSolutions Inc. (NYSE:EBS) announced today that Allen Shofe,
executive vice president of corporate affairs, has been appointed to serve on
the board of directors of the MdBio Foundation, a private charitable
organization whose mission is to support bioscience awareness, education, and
workforce development in Maryland. MdBio Foundation is an affiliate of the
Tech Council of Maryland.

“I am honored to serve on the board of a Foundation that is committed to
training and investing in tomorrow’s scientific talent, which is one of four
focus areas of Emergent’s GIVE corporate social responsibility program,” said
Mr. Shofe. “For years, Emergent has partnered with MdBio Foundation to host
the Young Science Explorers program (YSEP) at our Gaithersburg laboratory
facility providing middle school students a glimpse into biopharmaceutical

scientists about STEM-based careers. We look forward to again welcoming YSEP
at our facility in July.”

communities) is designed around a well-defined mission and focus areas – to
build a healthier and safer world by advancing global health, protecting those
who protect us, educating tomorrow’s scientific leaders, and improving the
communities in which we live and work. The program enables the company, sites,
and employees to contribute time, skills, and resources to support
organizations through a wide range of philanthropic activities.

“Our GIVE program can have a rewarding and enduring effect on our communities,
and motivate and invigorate employee achievement. Partnering with MdBio
Foundation is one of the many ways we can work together to impact the local
community,” said Mr. Shofe.
