Preserving the balance nature intended
LEADING THE WAY IN MICROBIOME DISCOVERY
MicroSintesis is a Canadian biotech company that is harnessing the power of the microbiome’s natural defense system (Quorum quenching) to create a new category of products targeting dysbiosis in swine and poultry.
THE FACES BEHIND THE SCIENCE:
For Hannah McIver, the convergence of business, science, agriculture and animal health is as inevitable as it is natural. Raised on a farm in England, she studied biomedicine at the University of Guelph before she and her sister Alison founded, (and subsequently sold) Agribiotics, a company specializing in research and production of microbial products for agriculture. With MicroSintesis, Hannah’s strong sense of mission (the Toronto Star calls her a “serial entrepreneur”) is now focused on making MicroSintesis a leader in the science of microbiome.
