Dr. Robert Brodnick comes to the PharmLabs executive team with an exceptional leadership background in regulated laboratories, consulting and food safety.
Robert completed his M.S. and Ph.D. in Biological and Analytical Chemistry at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and was directly commissioned to the rank of Captain into the U.S. Army Medical Services Corps. As Physiology and Immunology Branch Chief at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense, CPT Brodnick led a staff of 40+ civilian and soldier-scientists developing medical countermeasures for chemical warfare agent exposure. Robert concurrently launched a collaborative government/private sector initiative to develop nitric-oxide based therapies to treat cutaneous battlefield wounds. His contributions to combat casualty care research continued in 2012 when Brodnick deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom to execute a Vice Chief of Staff initiated mission to evaluate a blood biomarker diagnostic for concussion. Upon return, Robert was assigned to the Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, HI, where he continued evidenced-based research into advanced wound care. He was promoted to the rank of Major and filled the role of Deputy Commander at the US Army Forensic Toxicology Drug Testing Laboratory. He oversaw testing of nearly one-million samples per year, and was a member of the DOD Drug Demand Reduction Program Quality Assurance Inspector General team - a body that inspects and certifies the DOD drug testing labs. Robert consulted or testified in over 100 service-member cases as a court-qualified expert witness in cannabis and other drug toxicology, analytical testing, and human performance and behavior. MAJ Brodnick was honorably discharged from service and joined Food Safety Net Services, a nationwide network of thirteen ISO 17025 accredited food testing labs. As Chief Science Officer, he was responsible for modernizing enterprise quality systems, maintaining ISO 17025 accreditation, and growing a team of top scientists and consultants.

Dr. William English, an Oahu resident, brings twenty years of analytical chemistry experience to the Hawaii pharmacology testing market. Will’s first job as an analytical chemist was modifying old HP GC-FID’s to test for atmospheric pollutants in remote locations. After graduate school he joined the US Army as a biochemist. His first assignment was at the US Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense where he was a primary investigator studying organophosphate poisoning in biological matrices. He quickly was promoted to the position of Chief of the NeuroBehavioral Toxicology Branch. Will supervised eight senior scientists and over 40 technicians as they tackled the issues around chemically induced neuro-crisis. After a fun and exciting year in Afghanistan Will decided that he never wanted to be cold again and put in for a transfer to Hawaii at the Tripler Forensic Toxicology Drug Testing Laboratory. At the Tripler Forensic Toxicology Drug Testing Laboratory Will was initially assigned as the Chief of Confirmation where he was responsible for the Extractions, GCMS, and LCMS sections. Will left active duty in 2013 and in 2014 took the Technical Director position at the same laboratory. During his time at the drug lab Will developed and validated the hydrocodone/hydromorphone and benzodiazepine GCMS test. He also brought major changes to the MDA/MDMA test procedure. Will is excited to utilize all his prior 20 years of knowledge and experience in the laboratory to legitimize the cannabis industry by ensuring fast and accurate laboratory testing for the purity and potency of cannabis and all cannabis related products. Will is also eager to conduct research and studies involving cannabis that can help unlock some questions the scientific community has.
Amber Myers graduated from Sonoma State University with a BA in Economics with a minor in Mathematics. She joined the PharmLabs team after years of doing contract graphic design for the laboratory’s marketing materials and advertisements. Her experience in administration, marketing and design make her well suited to help PharmLabs grow and ensure cannabis users have the information need to make informed consumption decisions. From D.A.R.E. Graduate, to now canna-activist, Amber hopes to see Federal regulations on cannabis eliminated in order to allow for unrestricted research and encourage greater understanding of the medicinal benefits of cannabis. When Amber is not working to advance the cannabis industry, she can be found sewing, swimming in the ocean or singing karaoke.
