Speaker
  • Independent Consultant
    Biography
      Gia is currently working as an independent consultant supporting the agricultural biotechnology industry, after leaving in 2017 as the Director of Project Planning with Arcadia Biosciences managing the program portfolio of the company. Prior to that she managed the Analytical Science and Regulatory Support group for nearly 5 years, performing crop analysis and generating data for regulatory approvals through the FDA, USDA and multiple international agencies. Before that she worked as a principal scientist also at Arcadia in the Nitrogen Use Efficiency Program generating metabolic and protein fingerprints for engineered plant lines. She has also worked as a Research Technician at Rice University between undergrad and graduate school. Gia has a PhD in Biochemistry from Rice University (2007) and graduated from Indiana University (2001) with a BS in Biology, where she studied plant natural products and protein chemistry, respectively.

    Abstract

    Cannabis sativa is an herbaceous plant of high interest, with applications of the plant and its products varied and ripe with investment. The Cannabis industry experienced a new surge of business as each state within the US moves toward more relaxed regulations for medicinal and recreational use. While the economic impacts are worthy of study, the fundamental fact doesn’t change: Cannabis sativa is a plant to be maximized for yield with improved desired agronomic and compositional characteristics. Therefore, it is appropriate to consider Cannabis sativa as a crop plant worthy of research not only for direct improvements, but also for the crop industry worldwide. As more places in the US are permitted to grow and cultivate Cannabis and the investor pool expands, the crop industry can expect to see multiple benefits of accelerating knowledge in farming practices, genetics, physiology, harvesting, processing and labor. 

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Agricultural management of Cannabis today
    2. New avenues of research that will advance crop research
