Wendy Lynch,PhD.

Depart of Pychiatry, University of Virginia Medical School Animal Division

Dr. Lynch is  Getwele's research partner and Principal Investigator on the joint NIH/NIDA proposal on the preclinical proof-of-concept data for the use of SMAASH-C as an effective, safe, and selective anti-cocaine seeking intervention.

She  has more than 18 years of experience conducting drug self-administration studies including heroin in male and female animals, and more than 11 years of experience with designing, coordinating, and analyzing molecular data. She also has experience conducting drug self-administration studies in humans as well as collaborating on translational research efforts.

Maricel Kann, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Department of Biological Sciences

University of Maryalnd Baltimore County

Dr Kann is collaborating with Getwele and American Sample Archives, a genetic/biological laboratory to develop a pipeline for the systematic analysis of genomic data related to drug abuse.  Focus will be on the study of the molecular pathways involved in heroin abuse and the comparison of the molecular process between clients recoverying from heroin abuse with and without intervention by a nutritional supplement (SMAASH-H) designed by Getwele in its recovery & wellness center.

Pete Estsacio MD, Ph.D.

American Sample Archive

Dr. Estsacio is the owner of American Sample Archive that Getwele will collaborate with and Dr Kann.

In Dr Estsacio's laboratory, epigenetic markers will be identified to help manage the drug seeking behavior seen in individuals who have altered methylation and/or acetylation patterns that likely correlate with heroin dependence. 

Helen N. Asemota, Ph.D

Professor Of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Director Of Biotechnology Center
At Mona, Jamaica

Prof. Asemota  has served UWI for more than two decades and has lectured for over 30 years at the undergraduate, postgraduate and postdoctoral levels collectively in different parts of the world.  She also serves as an international Biotechnology Consultant to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization. 

Getwele did a 7-year collaboration with her laboratory to identify the biochemical mechanism of action by which SMASSH-C was able to reduce drug seeking behavior in cocaine dependent rats. Getwele also collaborated with the department of physiology to do behaviorial study on the effect of SMAASH-C on amphetamine seeking rats. The study showed a reduction in seeking.
