(Research Triangle Park, NC), a Duke University spinout that develops site-specific biological delivery systems, has closed on a $3 million round of funding that was led by existing investors.

"We have many unique and exciting opportunities to leverage our technology platform to improve the performance of medical devices, which will ultimately help many healthcare patients. Affinergy's plan for 2006 is to add new scientists, expand our base of partners, initiate several preclinical programs, and begin developing our own proprietary products. This new funding allows us to begin these investments immediately."
