Genelux Announces Closing of a Strategic Financing Transaction

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Genelux Corporation, a privately-held clinical-stage immunotherapy company, today announced that it has entered into a convertible note and warrant financing transaction with Woodward Diversified Capital (WDC).
