"We are very pleased to elevate Dr. Even to the role of Chairman," stated Dr. Avinoam Dukler, Glycominds' co-founder, director and Chief Executive Officer. "As a valuable member of our team, his in-depth experience in in-vitro diagnostics has heightened the credibility of Glycominds and our glycan technology as we roll-out our innovative tests for autoimmune prognosis and the early detection of cancer in Israel, Europe, and the U.S. In addition to his strong scientific educational background, he raises our Company's profile in preparation for an initial public offering in the U.S."

"Glycominds' glycan technology stands out as innovative and unique in comparison to the vast number of technologies and scientific approaches that I have seen throughout my years of involvement in the medical diagnostics industry," stated Dr. Even. "I believe that glycan technology has the potential to enhance autoimmune prognosis and the early detection of cancers. Glycominds is clearly pioneering the direction forward for adoption of glycan biomarkers in our industry and is greatly contributing to the visibility and international recognition of Israeli innovations and contribution in the field of medical in-vitro diagnostics."
