Considered one of the world’s leading experts on the role of stress in drug addiction, Goeders will be among a select list of distinguished advisors serving on the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB).
Tony Giordano, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of JanOne, added, “Dr. Goeders’ dedication to the field of addition has produced research and findings that are virtually unmatched in scope and consequence. He will be an outstanding addition to our esteemed Scientific Advisory Board.” JanOne Inc. is a company focused on developing drugs with non-addictive, pain-relieving properties and cultivating treatments for conditions that cause severe pain.
“I am delighted to be able to contribute my knowledge to the very important work JanOne is doing to reduce risk associated with opioid addiction and overdose,” said Dr. Goeders. “PAD associated pain can be severe, and nearly 25% of all those with PAD are at risk for addiction when being prescribed opioids to treat chronic neuropathic pain. I look forward to working with the talented team at JanOne and alongside the distinguished members of its SAB on the Company’s fight against opioid addiction.”
