Los Angeles, CA, February 7, 2008 – Jarrow Formulas, Inc., a nutrition industry pioneer headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, announces the hiring of Brad Douglass, Ph.D as its new Technical Specialist and Lisa Schultz as its new Research Associate.
Previously, Dr. Douglass worked for KinetiChem Inc. where he developed chemistry applications for a novel thin-film reactor technology and assisted pharmaceutical and fine chemical industry licensees with tailoring this technology to their processes. He obtained his Ph.D from USC in Organic Chemistry where his research efforts concentrated on drug discovery. He was also a postdoctoral fellow at USC where he investigated novel blood-brain barrier transport methods for use in drug delivery to the brain.
“I have an affection for health and science,” says Dr. Douglass. “The lifeblood of Jarrow Formulas is passion bulwarked by solid science. I hope to add to that.”
Ms. Schultz will bolster research and customer service efforts at Jarrow Formulas. Her professional experience is in the Information Technology arena. However, she decided to change her career path and recently graduated with a BS degree in Nutrition with an emphasis in Dietetics from Arizona State University.
Ms. Schultz’s primary objective is to contribute to the greater good through healthy living. “One of the greatest assets I have is being able to obtain and then convey information to a wide range of people,” explains Schultz. “This opportunity will enable me to incorporate both my Information Technology experience and my degree in Nutrition.”
