Noted Herb Expert Joins American Botanical Council as Chief Science Officer
Date:7/16/2013

fner. "I am delighted to be part of a group with its primary goal to educate people on the benefits of medicinal plants, and look forward to the prospect of working closely with Mark Blumenthal, one of the most respected people in the medicinal plant community, and with an advisory board that lists many of the renowned scientists in the area of medicinal plant research."

Dr. Gafner continued, "I've never seen so many new technologies applied to plant science — this is possibly the most interesting time to be involved in medicinal plant research and I'm just thrilled to be part of the team whose mission it is to make it more available to the public."

"I was delighted to learn that Stefan Gafner will become the first Chief Science Officer of the American Botanical Council," said noted author and herbalist Steven Foster, chair of ABC's Board of Trustees. "Stefan is an energetic scientist who embodies the needs of the many facets of ABC stakeholders. He is a practical pharmacist and phytochemist who understands the commercial landscape of the world of herbs, and perhaps most importantly, from my perspective, he is equally at home in nature as he is in the lab.

"Fifteen years ago," Foster elaborated, "Stefan introduced me to the Alpine wild herbs of his native Switzerland, where he generously drove me to remote mountain villages to explore local herbs. Stefan brings a collaborative spirit, love of nature, and broad scientific experience to ABC."

Dr. Gafner also received high praise from other professional colleagues.

"Stefan Gafner is a superb choice to serve as ABC's first Chief Science Officer. He is an exceptionally skilled pharmacognosist and pharmacist, and comes to ABC with great experience in herbal supplements and personal care products from his service at Tom's of Maine<
