TNG Pharmaceuticals, the 2011 Global Venture Labs Investment Competition winner, will ring the Closing Bell at the NASDAQ OMX Market on Friday, June 3. University of Louisville’s TNG Pharmaceuticals beat out 37 other student teams from around the world for the title of Global Champion. Venture Labs Director Rob Adams presents the winning check to team members Jenny Corbin, Larry Horn, Max Brudner, Cory Long and Terry Tate.
TNG Pharmaceuticals has developed a revolutionary vaccine that will alleviate the negative impact of the horn fly, considered the most health depleting and economically damaging pest of cattle. FlyVax is targeted to reduce the number of horn flies per cow, leading to increased farmer efficiency, production, and lower pesticide use.
