Applied DNA Sciences to Present at Upcoming Mauldin Economics Strategic Investment Conference

STONY BROOK, NY--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) -  Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: APDN) (Applied DNA), a provider of DNA-based supply chain, anti-counterfeiting and anti-theft technology, product genotyping and product authentication solutions, announced that management is scheduled to participate at the Mauldin Economics Strategic Investment Conference in Dallas, Texas, May 24 through May 27, 2016. The theme of this conference is 'Decade of Disruption: Investing in a Transformed World' and it is expected that over 700 investors will be in attendance.

One of only three companies invited to participate at the conference, Applied DNA's President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. James Hayward, will participate in a panel discussion on the most important breakthroughs in biotechnology on Wednesday, May 25 and Thursday, May 26. Applied DNA will also be an exhibitor at this conference which attracts high net worth individuals and financial professionals from around the world.

"Residing at the intersection of technology, market opportunity and the ability to transform our daily lives, the Strategic Investment Conference enables us to expand the awareness of Applied DNA with investors who invest in tomorrow's disruptive technologies today," stated Dr. Hayward. "Applied DNA's contribution has been to redefine "TRUST" using the biology of authenticity. The global societal and economic future relies on clear definitions of identity ("Trust me, this drug is the real thing"), origin ("Trust me, this is Italian"), claims ("Trust me, this was organically grown"), composition ("Trust me, this is 100% Pima cotton"), and ethical sourcing ("Trust me, no child labor helped to produce this product"). The Applied DNA solution is already being deployed in textiles and apparel through DNA marking of 100 million pounds of cotton. Over 500,000 critical microchips have been DNA marked, protecting our war fighters around the world. We also are securing ATMs in Europe and protecting over 1 million personal assets globally.Our convergence of biotech and information technologies enable DNA-based security solutions to answer the formidable macroeconomic and geopolitical challenges of our day and of tomorrow. Judy Murrah, our Chief Information Officer, and I look forward to presenting Applied DNA to the attendees of this prestigious conference."
