Walter P. Drake, J.D., Ph.D.
Walter is General Counsel, Principal Founder, and Chief Scientist for the Company. A published scientist with over 25 lead author publications in peer reviewed biomedical journals, he has studied stem cell therapy for over 15 years and more recently has delved into the development of transdermal herbal and plant preparations for pain. Knowledgeable in High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Thin Layer Chromatography for plant fingerprinting and extracts identification, his research interests allign with the Company he founded, that being the development of transdermal plant medicinals and cosmetics which bypass digestion and deliver compounds directly to the blood stream. In addition to screening new plants and herbs for pain, he intends to steer the Company not only in the direction of developing stem cell related products, but also to screen plants and herbs and other compounds for extracts that can boost innate stem cell activity in patients whose the stem cells exist but are largely dormant. Walter’s impressive publication portfolio includes the co-authoring of the first stem cell therapy safety paper published in the United States (2017), and an important paper showing why the popular herbal extract, Icariin, has no clinical efficacy for Erectile Dysfunction (2019).
David L. Greene, M.D., M.B.A
A retired U.S. orthopedic surgeon and Founder of R3 Stem Cell, a regenerative medicine company specializing in patient advocacy, marketing and the distribution of post-natal stem cell products obtained from FDA licensed stem cell banks. Dr. Greene is deeply committed to advancing the new Mixed Cell Regenerative Medicine, focusing on patient and provider education with numerous clinical research projects ongoing. In line with the 21st Century Cures Act, mandating that the FDA consider “patient experience data”, thereby making the traditional clinical trials unneccessary to establishing the usefulness of a new therapy, Dr. Greene is on the forefront of advancing stem cell therapies for Americans and is among the few stem cell researchers to recognize the importance of non-cellular compounds such as proteins, cytokines, and growth factors as playing a necessary role in achieving a therapeutic result. Dr. Greene’s proven experience and capability in establishing a network of stem cell providers will be of immense benefit in guiding the Company in future marketing and research campaigns.
