Tamarisk Technologies Group Announces New Addition to Science Team

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tamarisk Technologies Group, LLC, a technology development company engaged in the development of innovative drug delivery technology, announced last week that it has added Dr. Mel Affrime to the Tamarisk team as Director of Scientific Affairs. 

"We are excited to have Mel on the Tamarisk team," says Dean Crowell, Executive Director of Tamarisk Technologies Group.  "His experience and expertise in global clinical research and development will be invaluable as we enter the pre-clinical phase and subsequent clinical trials for our oral drug delivery system. Mel will play a vital role in preparing for our upcoming lab work and structuring our test data to engage the market."

"I'm excited to be a part of the Tamarisk Team!" says Dr. Affrime. "I'm looking forward to taking our SSNE system to the industry. With our novel technology, we are poised to revolutionize the drug delivery market."

Tamarisk Technologies was founded in 2008 with a mandate to release strategic technological solutions for various industries based upon real-world studies of Biomimicry. In early 2012, Tamarisk unveiled a successful development of the first viable oral insulin using its novel Serum-Specific Nano-Encapsulation (SSNe) transport technology, as well as pegylated peptides, vitamins, minerals and other pharmaceuticals previously available only intravenously.

"Our mission at Tamarisk is to apply the natural macroscopic and microscopic symbiosis found in nature to the development of biotechnologies," says A.T. Snoots, Tamarisk's Director of Operations. "Our #NoMoreNeedles campaign promoting our SSNe technology for the development of orally administered insulin is just one example of how Tamarisk's technology will benefit society."
