MEMPHIS, Tenn., April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MRI Interventions, Inc. (OTCBB:MRIC) today announced that its board of directors has elected Philip A. Pizzo, M.D. as a new director. Dr. Pizzo most recently served as Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine, a position he held from April 2001 until December 2012. Dr. Pizzo has long been a leader in academic medicine, championing programs and policies to improve the future of science, education and healthcare in the U.S. and beyond.
