M. T. Fouad, M.Sc., Ph.D. founded Biotron® Laboratories, Inc. in 1979. An experienced scientist, Dr. Fouad received a M.Sc. in Microbiology while working at the University of Reading in England, and completed his Ph.D. in Virology at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Following completion of post-doctoral training at the University of Kansas Medical Center, he worked in the biological and pharmaceutical industries, successfully developing a para-influenza vaccine for which he was named the sole inventor by the U.S. Patent Office. It was during this time that he began to more fully appreciate the role of minerals and trace elements in a vigorous immune system, disease prevention and ultimately, general health maintenance.

Dr. Fouad began exploring the potential of chelation and how a properly prepared mineral chelate could increase the nutritional value of essential minerals and trace elements. In 1971 he developed a unique process for preparing these compounds which lead to the extensive use of chelated minerals in human nutrition. Widely recognized for his contributions to the field, he was named a Fellow of the International College of Applied Nutrition and served on a variety of advisory boards as well as scientific panels. He was appointed Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Applied Nutrition, a post he held from 1979 to 1985. He has authored numerous scientific papers which have been published in American, British, German and Egyptian journals – a reflection of over 40 years experience in the academic, pharmaceutical and nutrition science industries.
