It is just two months until the Texas A&M University System’s Scientific event, but you’ll want to book your tickets early. The keynote speaker for the Short Course has just been announced, and it is none other than Global Green’s Chief Scientist and Vice President of R&D: Dr. Konky Sotomayor, DVM.
This is going to be the 4th year that the Practical Short Course will focus on Trend and Development of Nutraceuticals & Functional Foods: Sources, Identification, Extraction, Separation, and Purification. It will run from July 28th – 30th and be hosted by the Food Protein R&D Center at Texas A&M University.
Dr. Sotomayor was formerly with the Nutritional Health Institute Laboratories, LLC and played a key role in the development of Salmogenics, the flagship product of Global Green. He was made Chief Scientist of Global Green in August 2012. He will bring his expertise in both the areas of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechny as well as his experience working with Global Green to help lend an operational knowledge of working with nutraceuticals and functional foods.
Likely his information will lend a forward-thinking “Green” approach to using naturalized methods for working with foodstuffs, avoiding the use of adulterants, and possibly emergent technology in the area that will employ fewer pharmaceuticals when removing diseases and bacteria from market food. He will be offering invaluable insights into the trends of both the scientific and industrial sectors.
Global Green has long been a proponent of creating greener pharmaceuticals and identifying and promoting products that use natural organisms over those that are genetically modified but still reach pharmaceutical standards. Their primary product, Salmogenics, has revolutionized the way Salmonella infections are combated, stopping them at the source – the animals – rather than treating the bacterial infections in people.
