Dr. Jose Casaretto
José Casaretto, Ph.D. is a plant biologist with twenty years of research experience in plant physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology. He was director and co-investigator of over ten research projects focused on studying different aspects of plant metabolism and environmental stress tolerance in different plant species. Dr. Casaretto is an Associate Research Scientist at the University of Guelph where he has used genomics tools to investigate regulatory networks of plant metabolic pathways and stress responses in crops. He is part of a team of researchers that investigates the molecular basis and potential behind cannabis genetics -and other medicinal plants- that will have useful applications for the production of compounds of interest for the industry.
