ImmunoCellular Therapeutics names Gengos as CEO

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd. on Monday named Andrew Gengos as president and CEO.

In August ImmunoCellular said Manish Singh had resigned as president and CEO. The move came after the company posted a wider second-quarter loss. Founder and Chairman John Yu replaced Sigh as interim CEO.
