Ilya Raskin, PhD, Professor II at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and President of the Global Institute for Bio-Exploration (GIBEX), Founder and Partner in Nutrasorb LLC and Food4Good Inc., Member of the NIH Center for Botanicals and Metabolic Syndrome.
Our laboratory is interested in discovering, studying and developing a new generation of plant-derived foods, medicines and cosmetics. Our work primarily targets metabolic syndrome, inflammatory diseases and skin aging. We are also developing technologies that naturally and effectively concentrate, stabilize and deliver beneficial phytochemicals from edible and medicinal plants in the amounts sufficient to promote health and wellness. We lead the Global Institute for BioExploration (GIBEX), which is an international research and development network that promotes ethical, natural product-based pharmacological bioexploration to benefit human health and the environment in developing countries.
