Cannabis Science and Technology® is pleased to announce the addition of Anthony Macherone to its editorial advisory board (EAB).

Dr. Macherone currently holds a dual appointment as a Senior Scientist with Agilent Technologies and a Visiting Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His recent work in the exposome has explored associations between organochlorine pesticide exposures and diabetes in migrant populations participating in the LOPLIPOP and MASALA Cohorts. Macherone co-edited the book Unraveling the Exposome: A Practical View with contributions from recognized experts around the world. In 2015, he established an Exposomics Interest Group within the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS), which has led to a full program at the annual ASMS meeting. In November 2018, Dr. Macherone co-coordinated the first two-day New York City Exposome Symposium at the New York Academy of Medicine where 155 researchers from eight different countries were in attendance. In 2020, he co-chaired a four-day symposium entitled “Unravelling the Exposome” at the January ASMS Sanibel Conference. Over the past several years, he and his colleagues have extended the exposome paradigm to explore honeybee health and collapse disorders. This research has identified a putative mechanism associated with Nosema ceranae infection and dysregulated biological pathways associated with specific biomarkers.

Since November 2016, Dr. Macherone has also led a team of scientists in the development of analytical methodologies to support research, safety and quality control for the emerging cannabis and hemp fields in U.S. states, Canada, and several other countries in Latin America and the European Union. Future work will use exposomics to evaluate potential associations with cannabis exposures and phenotypes.
