Company Placing Priority on Investor Engagement with New Website,
Email Updates

Genprex,
Inc.
(NASDAQ: GNPX)
a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing a new approach to
treating cancer based upon a novel proprietary technology platform,
announced today that it will be increasing its investor relations
efforts in 2019, spearheaded by the launch of an innovative corporate
website with more robust investor resources, including the company's
presentations, stock charts and integrated quotes, SEC filings, news,
media coverage, and tailored email newsletters, among other advanced
communication tools. As part of today's announcement, investors already
have the ability to receive all news regarding Genprex straight to their
inbox by signing up for the company's communication list at https://www.genprex.com/investors/email-alerts/.

In addition to the new investor relations initiatives, Genprex will also
be retaining the services of expert media relations and public relations
firms with the express purpose of increasing the quantity and improving
the quality of investor communications. Genprex also plans to use modern
tools like social media for greater distribution of news and company
announcements. According to Genprex CEO Rodney Varner, engagement and
outreach with investors will be among the company's top priorities in
2019.

"We're extremely excited about the added emphasis on investor
communications and relations in the new year," said Varner. "We believe
that the drug candidates that we are working to develop every day at
Genprex are groundbreaking and we recognize the importance in keeping
investors abreast of our team's initiatives and successes. With the new
website and email newsletters we will be launching, we intend to provide
to current and potential investors unprecedented insight into what is
happening at Genprex as we continue to work at the forefront of the new
age of immunogene therapy cancer treatments."

The company's new investor relations initiatives come on the heels of
months of promising developments at Genprex.

In October, Jan Stephens, RN, joined the company's Cambridge,
Massachusetts office as Genprex's new Vice President of Clinical
Operations, bringing with her nearly 20 years of comprehensive clinical
operations experience in the biopharma industry and a specialization in
early-to-late stage oncology companies. Stephens joined the company to
help support the various clinical development programs for Genprex's
proprietary immunogene therapy, Oncoprex™.

In addition to adding Stephens to its clinical leadership team, Genprex
also entered into a significant agreement with The University of Texas
MD Anderson Cancer Center to extend two option agreements between
Genprex and MD Anderson pertaining to the use of TUSC2, the active agent
in Oncoprex.

About Genprex, Inc.

Genprex, Inc. is a clinical stage gene therapy company developing a new
approach to treating cancer based upon a novel proprietary technology
platform, including Genprex's initial product candidate, Oncoprex™
immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex's
platform technologies are designed to administer cancer fighting genes
by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles,
which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells
where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities.
Oncoprex has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell
signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer
cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death,
in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells.
Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug
resistance. Visit the company's web site at http://www.genprex.com
