Simon Wood PhD, FRSC(UK), CChem, CSci
Dr Wood is an Adjunct Professor at the University of British Columbia, Food, Nutrition and Health Program and an Adjunct Professor at the School of Public Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, Curtin University, Australia. He has over 35 years of experience gained on three continents managing chemical companies, developing proprietary natural products and their global markets and lecturing at a medical university.
He has worked on the science behind various natural products for the last 15 years from start-ups to multinational; developing data for safety, pre-clinical, human trials, regulatory status and patents. He has published over 30 peer reviewed papers and has several patents.
His interests are in developing science on natural products from structural identification through preclinical studies to human trials at CRO’s and Universities around the world and then using these to attain status with regulators globally that helps facilitate sales. Other interest involves combining natural products with Pharmaceutical products.
PetLife’s CEO, Dr. Salvagno, commented “The addition of Dr. Wood to our team will expand our internal knowledgebase of the industry and the potential reach of PetLife in the veterinarian pharmaceutical space. It is critical for the growth of our company to have a pipeline of new drugs. New drugs and patents are important to the success of the company and in building shareholder wealth. The goal of PetLife was never to be a single product company. Dr. Wood will assist the company in researching potential drugs for PetLife to acquire or develop that would immediately expand the company's pharmaceutical product line. One of these potential drug candidates under consideration and review is already in Phase 3 trials on the human side and would potentially have a big impact in Veterinarian medicine. The additional products we are researching and already negotiating with address the most common diseases and complications in our companion pets.”
Dr. Wood stated “When I first looked at PetLife I knew this team of professionals were on to something big. There is a vacancy in this space and room for a young, lean company to make big inroads quickly. The key focus now will be getting the company's core product Vitalzul™ registered with the FDA/CVM. My task will be assisting with this in sharing many years of industry knowledge. I will be researching, evaluating and helping to secure and patent additional opportunities the company is considering now. There are many exciting opportunities and timely plays in this space and I am very excited to join the team on this mission.”
