Dr. Peter Chen
VP, Science and Technology
Peter holds a PhD in food science from the University of Guelph and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. His research focuses on developing novel drug delivery systems for phytochemicals such as rosmarinic acid and cannabinoids and to assess their pharmaceutical application potentials using dissolution testing and the TIM-1 simulated in vitro gastrointestinal digestion system. Dr. Chen will present research focusing on developing novel delivery systems for cannabinoids with enhanced water solubility, improved and consistent bio-availability and a clearer understanding of food matrix interactions on cannabinoid digestion assessed using the TIM-1 in vitro simulated digestion model.
