Mr. McCormick will serve on the Audit and Compensation Committees of the Board, and will chair the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board.

"Mick's vision, strategy and leadership led to the introduction of many innovative best-selling products at Columbia Sportswear," said Dwight Babcock, IsoRay's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. "We will deeply benefit from his sales and marketing expertise. It is difficult to find a director with both a strong background in well-known retail brands including Nike and Columbia Sportswear and a marketing background in the medical technology arena. We are excited that Mick has the experience and background to assist us in enhancing our communications and marketing strategies to get our products recognized as national and international brands by the healthcare community."

IsoRay's various products, including Cesium-131 seeds, sutured seeds, stranded mesh and the GliaSite® radiation therapy system, give physicians the ability to directly place a specified dosage of radiation in areas where cancer is most likely to remain after completion of a tumor removal or by placing seeds within the prostate. The ability to precisely place a specified dose of radiation means there is less likelihood for damage to occur to healthy surrounding tissue compared to other alternative treatments. IsoRay's cancer fighting products diminish the ability of the tumor to recur, resulting in important benefits for patients in longevity as well as quality of life.
