GAINESVILLE, FL -- (MARKETWIRE) -- 01/15/13 -- Quick-Med Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: QMDT), a life sciences company that is developing innovative technologies for the healthcare and consumer markets, announced today an update to a previous press release announcement. Quick-Med announced November 13, 2012 that John W. Sheets was appointed to join the board of directors of the company. Delays in receiving clearance from his employer's (Boston Scientific) corporate counsel have prevented Dr. Sheets from being able to join the company's board to date. As a result, Dr. Sheets' appointment as a board member has been rescinded by the company's board of directors at this time. Both Dr. Sheets and the company remain enthusiastic to work together and intend to do so as the situation permits.
