July 20th, 2012. PhytoTEK LLC, the start-up biotech company co-founded by Dr. Cassandra Quave and Mr. Sahil Patel, was awarded a Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) Venture Lab Phase IA award in the amount of $25,000 for the proposal “Anti-infectives for Companion Animals”. The aims of this project are to pursue further R&D on PhytoTEK’s biofilm inhibiting natural product composition.
I was lovely to meet you yesterday. Here is the PLoS ONE paper out this year on my biofilm inhibiting composition. It includes data on use of the inhibitor with daptomycin in in vitro catheter models. I’ll also be showing my poster this afternoon (PF46) if you’d like to chat some more.
All the best!
