Earlier this year BioFilm signed an agreement with Technology Commercialization Group, LLC (TCG), a life sciences business development firm in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, to grow its North American business.
“Our ongoing success in Europe along with promising US development programs have led to the decision to establish a larger presence in North America” said Trevor Morgan, CEO of BioFilm. “We selected TCG because of the team’s broad business development network in healthcare companies as well as their experience in drug development, consumer products and US product launches.”
“We are very pleased to represent BioFilm in North America,” said Kathy Meserve, the TCG Partner who leads BioFilm’s North American Business Development. “BioFilm’s extensive technical background combined with their TDF manufacturing expertise across the nutritional, OTC and HBA fields has helped their clients quickly and cost effectively expand their retail presence.
