Diego Castresana, MD, Ms. H.S.A., is a physician from Universidad del Norte in Barranquilla, Colombia, having obtained his degree in 1993. He attained a Master's degree in Health Services Administration from Nova Southeastern University in 1999 and a certificate in Top Management from Universidad del Norte in 2004.
Dr. Castresana worked for Universidad del Norte as a graduate studies professor, Director of Graduate Programs in Health Services Administration, a hospital board member and as CEO of the university hospital, where he led the process of transforming it from a basic healthcare center to a state-of-the-art university hospital with high-level complexity.

Following this success he became a private consultant for the healthcare sector in Barranquilla.
Dr. Castresana stated, "Research and development at Biologix Hair Inc. is extremely important. The work we are already doing with the Beijing Institute of Technology to standardize our patent pending Biologix Revive hair formula also has the potential to uncover refinements and I look forward to learning both exciting new information about alopecia as well as potential ways in which we can continuously improve our already remarkably effective therapy. I am pleased that R&D is an ongoing priority for Biologix and honored to lead this effort as we work towards securing worldwide approvals for the Biologix Hair Therapy System."
