Dr. Hudson studied Biology at the University of Calgary and University of Lethbridge from 2000 to 2005 where he performed research in both developmental plant biology and epigenetics/carcinogenesis in mammals.
Following completion of his undergraduate degree, he was awarded the NSERC Alexander Graham Bell scholarship to perform graduate studies at the University of Guelph, Ontario. There, he studied crops genetically modified to increase nitrogen use efficiency and yield.
Upon the completion of his PhD in 2010, Dr. Hudson received the MITACS Elevate Industrial Fellowship to continue his study of nutrient utilization in transgenic rice and corn. He subsequently joined a commercial fertilizer company as their Molecular Biologist/Plant Physiologist in spring 2012 where he performed research and development on novel fertilizer products.
Dr. Hudson is now utilizing his expertise in molecular biology and plant physiology to optimize cultivation protocols and identify specific Cannabis varieties for their medicinal values.
