STERLING, Va., March 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InferX Corporation (OTCPK:NFRX) announced today appointment of two new members to the InferX Management Advisory Board.
Lawrence Hoffman is a Senior Partner at Raffa P.C., a regional accounting firm based in Washington, D.C., and brings strong qualifications in the financial sector, with particular strengths in the area of forensic accounting and fraud/risk assessment. Building on InferX's prior work with a "Big Four" accounting firm identifying suspect transactions, we are working with Mr. Hoffman to explore creating an analysis practice area to support new CA/CM capabilities ('Continuous Auditing/Continuous Monitoring') which we believe is a high priority among major corporations.
Oliver Alabaster, M.D. is an Oncologist and was a Professor at the GWU Medical Center in Washington, D.C. where he was Director of Cancer Research for twenty years and also the Director of the Institute for Disease Prevention. Dr. Alabaster helped to found the Prevent Cancer Foundation in 1986 and was formerly Vice-Chairman of the Board. He has agreed to assist InferX in developing a predictive analytics solution to identify patients with a high risk of cancer.
