The Scientific Advisory Board will be chaired by Dr. Andrea Small Howard, Chief Science Officer of GB Sciences, Inc. “We are very honored to welcome some new members to our Scientific Advisory Board this year; as well as, Dr. Helen Turner, who has worked with GB Sciences for the past four years. Dr. Turner, VP of Innovation, Dean of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at Chaminade University, has been my collaborator on the discovery of our novel cannabis-based therapies since the beginning, and she is a co-inventor with me on all of GB Sciences’ original patent applications,” said Dr. Small-Howard. “Joining the team this year are Dr. Norbert Kaminsky of Michigan State University, whose laboratory was the first to discover cannabinoid receptor expression in the immune system, who pioneered studies of the effects of cannabis on immune modulation, and who has more recently been studying the effects of cannabis use on patients with HIV/AIDS. Dr. Carlos F. Ríos-Bedoya from McLaren Health, has been a pioneer in the use of mobile technology and Patient Reported Outcome software to expedite data gathering in clinical trials. In addition, Dr. Ríos-Bedoya brings experience in clinical trial protocol development and statistics to our team.” Full biographies for our Scientific Advisory Board members are available on our website.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
