STONY BROOK, NY--(Marketwired - June 04, 2013) - Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (OTCBB: APDN), (Twitter: @APDN), a provider of DNA-based anti-counterfeiting technology, anti-theft and product authentication solutions, today announced that Judy Murrah has joined the company as Chief Information Officer, reporting to Dr. James A. Hayward, CEO and President. Murrah will be responsible for information technology strategy and implementation, including operations support, customer-facing applications and development of the company's underlying technology infrastructure.

Said Dr. Hayward: "Our company is committed to excellence in service and technology for our customers. Judy shares that commitment like no one else we have met. We are thrilled to have her on our team and bring her incredible experience and range of skills to Applied DNA and our customers."

Murrah comes to APDN from Motorola Solutions, which had acquired her former firm, Symbol Technologies. At Motorola, Murrah was Senior Director of Information Technology, overseeing financial operations, quality assurance, and IT governance of thousands of resources globally. At the data capture and wireless mobility pioneer, Symbol, Murrah established and led the IT Portfolio and Project Management Office and the company's first cross-functional business Portfolio Review Board for governing investment spend and programs.

Ms. Murrah holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Harvard Business School, and a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Industrial Engineering from the University of Rhode Island. She is the author of eleven U.S. patents.

Murrah commented, "I am pleased to join a team so committed to addressing a problem of global proportion. Eliminating counterfeits will save lives. The impact of the counterfeit economy is enormous, estimated by some to be approaching $1.4 trillion annually. The technology is elegant and proven. Combining biotechnology with information technology offers breakthroughs for security and law enforcement."

In addition to the business world, Ms. Murrah has taken her expertise to the non-profit sector. She is co-founder and President of ConnectToTech, a recognized leader in programs to engage students in science, technology, engineering and math, known as the STEM disciplines. Recently, ConnectToTech was named a recipient in Computerworld's 2013 Laureate Honors Program. Laureates were recognized at an awards gala in Washington, D.C. yesterday. Ms. Murrah and her organization were presented with a medallion inscribed with the program's mission: "A Search for New Heroes."

Murrah was named to 2005/2006 Top 50 Women of Long Island and received the 2013 Diamond Award for Women Leaders in Technology.
