Granstein, M.D., to the Company's Technology Advisory Board. The Technology Advisory Board was formed to assist the Company in developing the BioLexa Platform. The BioLexa Platform is a proprietary, patented, drug compound platform developed at the University of Cincinnati.
Robb Knie, CEO of Hoth stated, "We are continuing to leverage the investment made by Spherix Incorporated (NASDAQ: SPEX) to expand and grow the BioLexa Platform by adding Dr. Granstein to our Technology Advisory Board. Dr. Granstein is one of the nation's most esteemed dermatologist and the current Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical Center. His extensive and prestigious background studying skin disorders will be invaluable to the Company in our attempt to bring relief to the approximately 32 million Americans suffering from eczema."
Richard D. Granstein, M.D. is the George W. Hambrick, Jr. Professor and Chairman of the Department of Dermatology. Dr. Granstein obtained his undergraduate education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his medical education at the UCLA School of Medicine. After completing his internship in 1979, he trained in dermatology at the Massachusetts General Hospital. As a Research Fellow, Dr. Granstein studied immunology and tumor biology at the National Cancer Institute-Frederick Cancer Research Facility and at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Granstein joined the faculty of the Department of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts General Hospital in 1984. In 1995 he left Harvard to become Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University and Dermatologist-in-Chief at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
Dr. Granstein's research interests center on the regulation of immunity within the skin and the relationship of the skin's immune system to the development of skin cancers. He also has a special research interest in the regulation of the immune system by stress and the nervous system. He was the first to demonstrate that certain immune cells within the skin are capable of initiating an immune response against a malignant tumor and that immune cells within the epidermis (the upper layer of the skin) have an anatomic relationship with nerves and can be regulated by proteins produced by those nerves. His clinical interests include autoimmune disorders of the skin, skin cancer, and psoriasis.
