LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC) today announced that it will host a key opinion leader (KOL) webinar on the transforming benefits of nicotinamide riboside (NR) on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at 11:00 am Eastern Time.
The webinar will feature a presentation from KOL and discoverer of the vitamin activity of NR, Dr. Charles Brenner, Alfred E Mann Family Foundation Chair in Diabetes and Cancer Metabolism at City of Hope National Medical Center and ChromaDex Chief Scientific Advisor, who will discuss the latest research on NR and its many benefits as a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). NAD+ is the central catalyst to multiple metabolic processes and a critical ally to cellular resilience and repair in healthy aging.
ChromaDex’s consumer supplement, Tru Niagen®, which features the company’s proprietary ingredient Niagen®, patented NR, will be discussed as the market’s most scientifically supported way to boost NAD+. Additionally, ChromaDex’s President & CEO, Rob Fried, will provide a company update.
A live question and answer session will follow. The event is open to the public and to register, please click here.
About Dr. Charles Brenner:
Dr. Charles Brenner, is one of the world’s leading experts on nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), the central catalyst of metabolism, and the discoverer of the vitamin activity of nicotinamide riboside (NR). Dr. Brenner is a 1983 graduate of Wesleyan University who worked for five years in industry (Chiron Corporation and DNAX Research Institute) prior to earning his 1993 PhD in Cancer Biology in the Biochemistry Department of Stanford University. He then served as a Leukemia Society of America Fellow at Brandeis University. Dr. Brenner has been an independent and externally funded investigator for 26 years, having served on the faculty of Thomas Jefferson University (1996-2003), Dartmouth College (2003-2009), University of Iowa (2009-2020), where he was the Roy J. Carver Chair and Head of the Biochemistry Department and the Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope (2020-present), where he is the inaugural Alfred E. Mann Chair of the Department of Diabetes & Cancer Metabolism. Brenner has won numerous awards for his research including new investigator awards from the March of Dimes, the Burroughs Wellcome Trust, the Arnold & Mabel Beckman Foundation, research awards from the NIH, the NSF, Lung Cancer Research Foundation and the Gates Foundation, and prestigious lectureships or honors from the University of Michigan, Brown University, University of Nebraska, the Spanish National Cancer Institute, the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the American Society of Nutrition. His work on NR was licensed and developed into the Tru Niagen consumer product by ChromaDex, a company for which he serves as the chief scientific advisor. He is globally in demand to educate people about NAD, having lectured all over North and Central America, Europe, the Middle East, the Far East and Oceana. His laboratory continues to work on unsolved problems in metabolism as they relate to virology, women’s and children’s health, cancer, chronic and degenerative conditions, and rare diseases. When he is not doing science or teaching about NAD, he can be found exercising or gardening in Pasadena, California.
