Tony Wang’s research has largely focused on feed and mycotoxin.
Canadian Bio-Systems (CBS) Inc., a Calgary-based feed additive and enzyme maker, has added a new member to its team.
The company announced this week it has hired Anhao “Tony” Wang as its nutrition and technical service coordinator.
His scope will include contributing to solutions supporting both domestic and international markets.
In the final stage of completing his PhD in Animal Science at the University of Saskatchewan, Wang has had a strong research focus on feed and mycotoxin throughout his studies.
“Tony brings a strong combination of passion, knowledge and skills that will support our technology platforms and customers across the board,” says Rob Patterson, CBS Inc. technical director.
“His academic and research background that is an excellent fit with our continued dedication to optimizing feeding strategies and mitigating mycotoxin risk.”
Wang, originally from Fuzhou in southern China’s Fujian province, has been studying in Canada since 2009.
He began as an undergraduate at Dalhousie University then completed graduate work at University of Saskatchewan.
A key aspect of his graduate research has been uncovering new knowledge of how to improve feeding strategies, including understanding mycotoxin impacts and how to mitigate them.
His PhD research focuses specifically on tackling the challenge of fusarium-related mycotoxins in poultry feed.
This includes groundbreaking knowledge on timeframes when impacts are more pronounced and when targeted solutions can have the greatest impact.
“I am very happy to become a part of the CBS Inc. team,” says Wang. “Since I was young I have always been interested in science and working with animals and the agriculture and food industry. This is the perfect situation for me to start my career.”
