Founders


Dr. Mike Goodnough. Having graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1994 with a Ph.D. in Food Microbiology, Dr. Goodnough wrote his doctorate thesis on the medical use of botulinum toxin. Dr. Goodnough has accumulated a great deal of toxin expertise over the last several years specializing in the research and development of improving the toxin's characteristics and discovering new applications. Mike has been a repeat speaker at the Interagency Botulinial Research Committee Conference. He also is a co-author on three issued patents and three patent applications. Prior to receiving his Ph.D., Mike obtained a M.S. in Food Microbiology and a B.S. in Bacteriology and Genetics.


Carl Malizio has worked as a Senior Research Specialist in the Department of Food Microbiology and Toxicology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since 1988. Concurrent with that position, Mr. Malizio also functioned as Laboratory Supervisor for Interactive Biologics Associates from 1993-96. In that position, Carl was responsible for the manufacture of botulinum toxins under cGMP's for medical use in humans. Product made in his laboratory passed Phase I and II clinical trials, and although it is impossible to verify, it is likely that Mr. Malizio has been involved with the largest number of successfully manufactured batches of GMP grade botulinum toxin ever made. Carl received a B.S. with honors degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Bacteriology in 1988.

Mr. Sivesind has been involved with several successful biotechnology companies at the earliest stages of their existence, including: Promega, PanVera and Mirus Corporations. He will work with the Company to develop a company infrastructure, establish appropriate business systems, and market toxin products to research customers.
