Digene Founder Headed for the Windy City

Here's a name from the past: Floyd Taub.
He founded Digene, a Gaithersburg biotech company that was recently bought by Qiagen for about $1.6 billion. Taub hadn't been involved in Digene for some time, but just now I got word out of Chicago -- my hometown -- that Taub has turned up as chief executive of a company there called CytoCore.

CytoCore, a privately held startup, is working on developing products for cancer screening and diagnosis. For more information about the company, click here.

CytoCore is a diamond in the rough - to manage to attract Dr. Taub tells the story!

Might be worth investing as long as it's below a buck!

Cytocore has a long way to go - However, Dr. Taub has a good reputation to bring the products to the market - and when this will happen - CYCR is a great investment opportunity
