Jim is LifePatent’s primary scientist, providing the technical expertise and innovative spirit to guide our formulations, extraction methods, and laboratory analytics. Jim received his PhD from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1969, and brings over 50 years of clinical expertise to LifePatent, with special knowledge in the fields of microbial biochemistry, genetics, biotechnology, and molecular biology. In particular, Jim’s expertise in the use of cell cultures for drug discovery has motivated his involvement with the Cannabis industry, and his desire to unlock and decode the curative powers of hemp CBD as a therapeutic and preventive remedy. Currently residing in Pennsylvania, Jim spent over two decades working within the halls of some of the world’s largest agrichemical and pharmaceutical companies, such as Monsanto and GlaxoSmithKline, developing new agricultural products and drug entities. Prior to this, Jim spent 11 years as a professor of microbiology at the University of Tennessee’s Center for Health Sciences. During this time, he gained an appreciation for the role that natural products play in our overall well-being. Most recently, Jim has served as a consultant with a variety of pharmaceutical, healthcare, and pet food companies. Jim is the author of over 100 scientific journal articles and book chapters. “Our understanding of the natural healing properties of hemp is rooted in science. Every formulation we create has a scientific basis. Anxiety and pain are indications of imbalances in the body. LifePatent works by helping the body return to its natural, balanced state."
