Reyes to its Board of Directors and to the position of Chief Technical Officer (CTO) effective immediately. He will report to Premier's President and CEO, William A. Hartman. As Chief Technical Officer, Dr. Reyes fills the vacancy recently created by the untimely passing of Dr. James Frincke. Our condolences go out the family of Dr. Frincke.

Dr. Reyes, MD, FAAN, a board certified neurologist and neuropathologist, is Chief Medical Officer and Board Member of the Retired National Football League Players Association. Dr. Reyes is a board member, and former Chair of the Education Committee and 2009 Distinguished Educator of the Association of Ringside Physicians. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology and was former Professor of Neurology and Neuropathology at Thomas Jefferson Medical School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Professor of Neurology, Pathology and Psychiatry at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska.

Dr. Reyes established the first clinic dedicated to the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and dementia at the Audie Murphy VA Hospital and at the University of Texas in San Antonio, where he pioneered the rapid brain autopsy system. He went on to build the same programs at Jefferson Medical College and Creighton University School of Medicine. He was principal investigator of the first FDA approved oral drug and skin patch treatment for Alzheimer's disease and the recipient of several research grants from the VA, NIH, NIA, industry, public and private foundations and donations from grateful patients, along with several prestigious achievement awards.

William A. Hartman, President and CEO of Premier Biomedical, stated, "Dr. Reyes is an extremely talented and accomplished medical professional, and we are fortunate that he has agreed to become our Chief Technical Officer. His experience will be a key catalyst as we move forward with pain relief products, planned for market introduction in the first half to 2017, and to reinvigorate our research on proprietary treatments for Alzheimer's Disease and Traumatic Brain Injury."
