Michael Sassano
Michael Sassano
Founder, Chairman & CEO Somai Pharmaceuticals; Leading Mergers as Founder of Solaris Farms; Investor, Cannabis, GMP Specialist, Alternative Medicine
Biography: Although Michael Sassano’s exciting career has led him to be involved in the fast-paced worlds of international real estate development, high-level banking, and cutting edge tech-investing, it is the cannabis space where he has shined the brightest. Michael is well known as one of the original movers and shakers in this sector, celebrated prominently in both mainstream business and cannabis media as an authority on large-scale cannabis cultivation, a pioneer of technology that affects entire markets, and an internationally respected expert on predicting long term industry trends. You can read about his advice's and progress here: https://www.somaipharma.eu/news
In July 2020, Michael led a merger of the cannabis cultivation company he built, Solaris Farms, with The Sanctuary, a local Las Vegas brand operating two dispensaries and an extraction facility. In four years with it's beginnings in private equity, Michael was able to build Solaris out from a bare lot of land into one of the largest and most well respected cannabis cultivation operations in the state of Nevada, and then further merged it into one of the top ten vertically integrated cannabis companies in the state. Michael remains on the advisory board and will help sell the new vertical to a larger company in the future.

Michael has otherwise shifted focus to his role as CEO and Chairman of the Board for Somai Pharmaceuticals LTD, an Ireland-based company that focuses on the cultivation and extraction of cannabis, and producing EU-GMP certified cannabinoid formulations for pharmaceutical distribution. Taking with him the superior cultivation and product development knowledge learned while operating a successful company in the hyper competitive western U.S. market, Somai will be one of the first American-run companies operating across legal European markets.

Michael is currently building scalable high out-put cultivation and extraction facilities in various strategic countries in Europe. The idea is to carefully develop processes for scalability and get proper registrations in order to expand as new countries legalize medical cannabis and new markets and demographics become available. The flexibility of his methods are intended to help mitigate any potential issues of government adoption by opening up avenues for adaptation and expansion as the EU market develops. As the continent ultimately comes fully online, Somai will be positioned as a top global pharmaceutical distributor of medical-grade, EU-GMP-certified cannabis.
Richard B.M. Schasfoort
Richard B.M. Schasfoort

Robert Conradt
Robert Conradt
A new Reproduction Index Ri and its relevance for an early warning system preceding a pandemic wave
Biography: I am the owner of a small company for measurement technology. Beside developments to high precision measuring devices (mainly torque, angle, force, flow rates etc.) we also develop very complex devices (e.g. ID card reader, for the biggest passport manufacturer in the world with 80% of all passports. I must admit: my favorite project). A special part of our work - and this is the origin of the paper - consists of non-university research (without public funding!). The mentioned paper is very much about good evaluation of measurement data (Covid19-data published by Robert-Koch-Institute (RKI)/ Germany). Weaknesses in the evaluation system of the RKI were found. With the correct evaluation and clever application and display of the data, one suddenly obtains insights that one (unfortunately) did not have before. This could have saved many lives and (at least in Germany) could have reduced the economic damage. Since RKI is a German federal authority, the resonance of our paper is understandably smaller in Germany than outside.
Gail Trauco
Gail Trauco
Advisory Committee Member COVID-19 FDA, Principal CEO The PharmaKon LLC, USA
Biography: The PharmaKon LLC specializes in clinical pharmaceutical product development and trials. It is a 100% woman owned business led by its CEO/founder Gail Trauco, R.N., BSN-OCN. The PharmaKon partners with biopharmaceutical and biotech companies, investigators, site staff, lab and technology vendors, and regulatory authorities to reinforce patient safety and access throughout every phase of research. All play a part in delivering the quality data that can drive promising compounds forward.
For nearly 30 years, The PharmaKon’s dedicated government and public health services group has successfully delivered clinical research services to various agencies, contractors and nonprofits in both prime contractor and subcontractor capacities within full compliance of all federal contracting requirements. Its services have supported the organizations in conducting therapeutic, vaccine and medical device studies on a global scale across all trial phases and therapeutic areas.

The PharmaKon has a unique understanding and connection to rural healthcare and underserved communities by way of Trauco’s personal experiences growing up on a family farm in her native North Carolina. Despite challenges with generational grief and poverty, Trauco persevered through high school and college at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and then began a life and career of her own as an oncology nurse. Trauco worked for the Chief of Surgical Oncology at Duke University Cancer Cener, Dr. Hilliard Siegler, a pioneer in the field of immunotherapy in 1957, whom she credits for her foundation of knowledge about medicine.

A registered Oncology nurse, pharmaceutical trials expert, and long-time Patient advocate, Trauco has spent four decades helping patients navigate the sea of red tape in the American healthcare system. Based just outside Atlanta, she has gained a reputation as a fierce advocate for patient’s rights and for resolving some of the most difficult medical cases in the currently crippled healthcare industry. As a lifelong healthcare professional and frequent on camera expert, Gail Trauco is equal parts Gloria Allred, Erin Brokovich, and Nancy Grace…with a small twist of Dog the Bounty Hunter.
