Guorong Lin, M.D., PhD

(McGill University, Canada)

Product Development Scientist

Dr. Lin obtained his medical education in Guangdong Medical University, China and fellowship training in endocrinology, metabolism and nutrition in University of Washington, USA. He completed his Ph.D. in Biochemistry, McGill University, Canada. He served as a physician and researcher in numerous institutions. His main contributions include theory of high density lipoprotein A-1(apoA-1) receptor-mediated cholesterol exocytosis pathway to prevent atherosclerotic heart disease, enzyme phosphorylation to regulate Krebs cycle and high energy metabolism, and superoxide (ROS stress) production through enzymatic phosphorylation of the complex I subunit in ETC chains. He also played a leading role in identification of PDE4 inhibitor as potential agent to treat low HDL cholesterol, ROCK inhibitor for diabetic myocardiopathy and methyl protodioscin as a transcriptional inhibitor to treat combined dyslipidemia. He joined the company in late 2016 in prospective to new product development, education and awareness of health benefits of natural products to clients.

Flavie Peudru, Ph.D,

(Laboratoire de Chimie Moléculaire et Thioorganique, France) 

Quality Assurance Manager

Dr. Peudru’s research work focuses on chemical synthesis of novel chemical compounds and their potential applications at the insitution.  Dr. Peudru then served as teaching professional in Organic Chemistry (Synthesis and Analysis) & Biochemistry at the University, and Technical Institute of Caen biological engineering department.  She moved from France to Canada to combine her knowledge in chemistry and her passion for the natural healing power to start her carrier in the natural health product industry. She is an expert on Canadian health product regulation for the natural product number (NPN) applications. Under her leadership, the company obtains over 700 natural product licenses from the Health Canada, and is the top licensee in phytopharmaceutical industry of Canada.

Yuttapong Singjunla, PhD

(University of Caen Basse-Normandie, France)

QC and R&D Scientist

Dr. Singjunla received his education from France, with BSc in Industrial Chemistry at the University of Bordeaux 1, Master of Science from the University of Lyon1 Claude Bernard, Doctor of Philosophy and Post Doctor training from the University of Caen Basse-Normandie. His expertise is in properties of non-proteinogenic amino acids and its application. The non-proteinogenic amino acids are natural or synthetic compounds that not naturally encoded or found in the genetic code of proteins in any organism. These amino acids may possess physiological activity and pharmacological applications. He joins the company in 2017 as an QC/ R&D Scientist to apply his knowledge in developing natural health products.

Daniel Wang, MSc. Pharm.

(Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, China)

Chief Scientist, VP of Processing

Mr. Wang is a scholar, scientist and corporate executive with nearly 30-year experience in phytomedicine and phytopharmaceutical industry.  He later served as a research scientist, an associate professor and a vice director of the natural product chemistry laboratory of the Beijing university of Chinese Medicine. After arriving Canada in 2001, Mr. Wang served as a research scientist for a biomedical company and several NHP companies. Mr. Wang joined Canadian Phytopharmaceuticals Corp. as QC Manager in 2004 and became head of R&D shortly after.  During this period, Mr. Wang successfully managed more than 100 contract research projects (CRPs) and contract manufacture projects (CMPs). He has over 30 scientific publications, some of them in respected journals.
