HOUSTON, Texas – May 10, 2007 —Tyrell, Inc., the creators of Zeno®, an innovative handheld medical device used in the treatment of acne, presented a check for $15,000 to M. D. Anderson. The product that made this donation possible is one of the newest additions to the Zeno product line – Zeno PRO.
Zeno PRO was introduced in the fall of 2006. For the past five months, proceeds from online sales of the pink model were designated for the Breast Cancer SPORE (Specialized Programs of Research Excellence) at M. D. Anderson. Zeno inventor and Tyrell COO, Rob Conrad, presented the $15,000 check to Sharon Giordano, M.D., assistant professor of breast cancer oncology.
“We knew we wanted to give back, and there was no question that M. D. Anderson was the place to support,” said Conrad. “We wanted to give to an organization we trusted and believed in, and it made perfect sense to donate the proceeds from our pink Zeno PRO.”
Conrad also has close ties to the hospital. His brother is a well-recognized researcher and clinician in neuro-oncology at M. D. Anderson and also the chief medical officer for Tyrell, and his sister was treated for cancer at M. D. Anderson in the early 1990’s.
