NORWELL, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, August 30, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — NED Medical Inc. (the “Company” or “NED”), a pre-clinical stage, Interventional Oncology company, announced the appointment of executives, Matthew Niblack and David Uffer, to its Board of Directors.

“I am thrilled to welcome Matt and Dave to NED Medical’s Board of Directors,” said Richard Yazbeck, NED Medical’s Chief Executive Officer. “Matt and Dave have broad business understanding, including decades of combined experience in business development, M&A and finance. Their knowledge and experience will be invaluable to NED Medical as we continue to advance our R&D effort and execute our financing, operations and supply chain strategies.”

“I am delighted to join this innovative company developing a novel radioembolic microsphere technology for the purpose of targeted treatment of challenging cancers. I strongly believe that this opportunity checks all the boxes in terms of strong management, strong IP, and a large and profitable market,” said Mr. Niblack. “I look forward to working with Rich and the rest of NED Medical’s team and my respected board colleagues to transform Transarterial Radioembolization (TARE) therapy and improve the lives of patients.”
