PREMIER Biosoft has announced that Dr. Vladimir Shulaev, PhD, has joined its Science Advisory Board (SAB) to assist the company in its efforts to develop software solutions to automate the mass spectrometry based metabolite and lipid profiling and quantitation methodologies.
In a statement, Chief Executive Officer at PREMIER Biosoft, Arun Apte said, "Dr. Vladimir's extraordinary accomplishment in developing metabolomics techniques and applying high-throughput metabolite profiling to study stress response in microorganisms, plants and animals brings immense value to our Scientific Advisory Board. We are delighted to have Dr. Valdimir on our panel."
Dr. Vladimir Shulaev has been actively working on cellular metabolites for the past 20 years. He is a Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of North Texas, TX. His main research interest is in developing metabolomics technology and contemplating the susceptibility of crops towards environmental stress - drought, high salinity and other climatic factors leading to reduced global agriculture productivity. He is formulating next generation breeding and engineering strategies aimed at reducing crop losses by unraveling the underlying plant metabolic responses to environmental stress.
"I am delighted to join the Scientific Advisory Board alongside an impressive group of industry peers,” said Dr. Shulaev. “I use the automated solutions PREMIER Biosoft has developed for small molecule research and see an enormous potential in their software products to take this research forward. I look forward to working with them to help advance small molecule research and to unravel the answers we have been seeking."
