Innovotech’s Board of Directors has appointed Dr. Patricia Nadworny BSc., Ph.D., P.Eng., as Chief Scientific Officer as it announces a new, disciplined commitment to exploiting and developing its technological expertise.


Dr. Nadworny obtained her undergraduate degree (BSc. Chemical Engineering with distinction, first in class) in 2004 at the University of Alberta in the Department of Chemical & Materials Engineering.  She earned her Ph.D. in Chemical & Materials Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Alberta’s Faculties of Engineering and Medicine and Dentistry, respectively, with a focus on biological activity of nanostructured silver.  


In her new position as Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Nadworny will be responsible for bringing new life to the Company R&D program.  Additionally, Dr. Nadworny will continue to oversee quality assurance and safety operations.


Innovotech has an extensive knowledge base regarding the InnovoSIL™ family of    antimicrobials that it believes can be developed for novel applications, to augment the potential of the initial member of the family, InnovoSIL-1™ antimicrobial silver, which has attracted interest from potential industry partners.  


The Company is continuing work to explore the technology represented by the Nou Life patent it controls.


Scientific R&D costs are expensed as incurred.  Innovotech understands that R&D expenditures can have a negative effect on net income from operations.  The Company fully intends to remain profitable and to that end will be disciplined regarding  the funds allocated and will work to leverage its R&D costs through government grants or industry joint venture participation.  Innovotech is truly excited to have Dr. Nadworny lead the reinitiated R&D activities.
