Vancouver, British Columbia – October 11, 2018 – Sirona Biochem Corp. (TSX-V: SBM) (FSE: ZSB) (the “Company”) announced today that Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Geraldine Deliencourt-Godefroy will attend and present at the Arctic Circle Assembly. This conference will take place October 19th – 21st at the Harpa Conference Center in Reykjavik, Iceland.
The Arctic Circle Assembly is the largest international gathering on the future of the Arctic. As described by the organizers, this annual event invites attendees from 60 countries, ranging from heads of states and governments, ministers, members of parliament, officials, experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, indigenous representatives, environmentalists, students, activists and others from the growing international community of partners and participants interested in the future of the Arctic. The Assembly covers a wide variety of topics designed in collaboration with partner organizations.
Dr. Deliencourt-Godefroy will be presenting in the Science and Traditional Knowledge Program. She’ll be discussing her work on glycoproteins based on arctic fish, a project she has been passionate about since her career began. In her post-doctoral research, Dr. Deliencourt-Godefroy was inspired by the naturally occurring antifreeze glycoproteins in the bloodstream of some fish that allow them to survive sub-zero temperatures. She has since developed a novel, patented family of compounds with a unique ability to resist stress, that are suitable for numerous commercial applications.
For over fifteen years, Dr. Deliencourt-Godefroy has continued to receive recognition for her innovative research and development within Europe, especially by the French Government. Prior to the Arctic Circle Assembly, Dr. Deliencourt-Godefroy will be attending Cosmetic 360 in Paris, France. At this global cosmetic trade fair, Sirona will be attending pre-arranged meetings as well as continuing to build networks with top industry representatives in cosmetics.
