The Canadian-based biotech company, Mountain Valley MD is changing the accessibility of vaccines to people around the world. With the mission of “more life, less death” the company is striving to make vaccines widely available to developing nations/ economies and people around the world.

This means:

  • Vaccine soluble tablet that rapidly dissolves
  • Does not have to be stored at dramatic high or cold temperatures
  • Can be distributed easily around the world
  • Helps more people in need and saves lives, due to access to high-quality vaccines
  • Working towards the goal of eradicating diseases such a Polio, COVID-19 and other highly infectious diseases or viruses

Previously, Dennis led publicly-traded ZENN Motor Company as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing. As a senior officer at ZMC, Dennis drove the establishment of ZENN – (Zero Emission, No Noise) as one of the most recognized “green tech” brands in North America.

Mountain Valley MD is building a world-class biotech and life sciences company organization centred around the implementation of its patented Quicksome™️️️ oral drug formulation and delivery technologies and its Quicksol™️️️ solubilization technology for macrocyclic lactones, to innovate industry-leading products that are sought out globally. MVMD’s proposition for delivering Quicksome™️️️ formulations that have a rapid onset, high bioavailability, low variability and precision dosing is core to the Company’s success across key health and wellness categories. Consistent with its vision towards “Helping People Live Their Best Life”, MVMD applies its Quicksome™️️️ and Quicksol™️️️ technologies to its ground-breaking work for advanced delivery of vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs as well as the development of products for pain management, weight loss, energy, focus, sleep, anxiety, and more. The Company’s patented Quicksome™️️️ desiccation technology utilizes advanced liposomes and other stabilizing molecules to encapsulate and formulate active ingredients into highly efficient product formats that are consumed orally. The result is a new generation of product formulations that are capable of delivering vaccines, drugs and nutraceuticals into the body faster, with greater impact, efficiency and accuracy. The Company’s patented Quicksol™️️️ solubilization technology covers all highly solubilized macrocyclic lactones (including the drugs Ivermectin and Selamectin). MVMD’s solubility technology applied to the Ivermectin drug is the only form in the world that only uses excipients that are currently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), making it a leading candidate for human injection and sublingual applications as well as significantly broader husbandry and companion animal treatments based on its low viscosity.
