Bringing Medicines to Market Faster Through Analytics & Machine Learning


Traditional medicine isn’t generally taken very seriously in the United States. However, Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, President and CSO at GB Sciences explained that “65% of the world still use traditional medicine either as their sole medicine or in conjunction with Western medicine.” Depending on the source, traditional plant-based medicine dates back as far as 60,000 years whereas Western medicine is a mere 3,000 years old.

Kevin Stevenson, I Don’t Care podcast host, sat down with the distinguished Dr. Small-Howard to discuss her work in the plant-based medicine industry. Dr. Small-Howard will also discuss the digital transformation curve with GB Sciences AI-based drug discovery platform PhAROS. This podcast is of great interest due in part to Dr. Small-Howard’s extensive resume. In fact, it is so extensive that the following introduction from her LinkedIn profile barely highlights her expertise.

“Dr. Andrea Small-Howard has 25 years of scientific research and executive experience in the biopharma industry supervising research & development, manufacturing, and quality control divisions in the US and China. Dr. Small-Howard has taken novel biological products from ideation through commercialization. She has been named an inventor on seventy+ patent applications, taken the lead in obtaining regulatory approvals from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (‘US FDA’), and orchestrated commercial licensing deals.”

Listeners might think that they would not be able to understand or relate to such a well-educated scientific mind, but nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Small-Howard is an engaging speaker filled with enthusiasm for her chosen line of work and her mission to normalize plant-based medicine in the United States.

“My background is in biochemistry, so I sort of see the world through a different lens and I’ve always been obsessed with the power of plant-based medicines. Traditional medicine is often overlooked as being a really powerful force here in the United States,” said Dr. Small-Howard. The doctor joined GB Sciences in 2014 to take plant-based medicine to the next level by utilizing science to maximize the potential of the cannabis plant.
