United States, 18th Aug 2023, King NewsWire – Dr. Aaron T. Dossey, a passionate self-made scientist entrepreneur, has emerged as a prominent figure in the sustainable food industry. Despite humble beginnings and a challenging economic landscape staked against the average American, Dr. Dossey has harnessed his expertise and unwavering dedication to revolutionize the way we approach food production and sustainability.
A lifelong, self-taught Entomologist and nature enthusiast, Dr. Aaron T. Dossey’s unwavering passion for his work has left an indelible mark on those who have had the privilege of knowing him.
Dr. Dossey’s educational journey includes a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Cum Laude, from Oklahoma State University in 2001, accompanied by minors in Chemistry and Mathematics. He furthered his academic pursuits by obtaining a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science, Biochemistry, and Molecular Biology from the University of Florida’s College of Medicine in 2006.
His contributions to the field have been substantial, with over 12 years of success and $5 million in research grant funding from institutions such as the USDA and DARPA. His extensive patent portfolio spans across the US, Canada, Mexico, and soon Europe, South Africa, and Thailand. Notably, Dr. Dossey is the author of the pioneering textbook titled “Insects as Sustainable Food Ingredients” (https://shop.elsevier.com/books/insects-as-sustainable-food-ingredients/dossey/978-0-12-802856-8 ).
Dr. Dossey’s company has achieved groundbreaking milestones, creating a range of ready-to-market food products made from insect protein, including breakfast cereals, snacks, pastas, tortillas, meat alternatives, and baked goods. Proprietary technologies for processing farm-raised insects into high-quality food ingredients have been patented, along with innovative automated insect farming technologies and equipment. Notably, with the support of DARPA funding, his team sequenced and published the genome of the House Cricket, a widely farmed insect, and developed CRISPR genetic engineering technologies based on that data.
As an authority in his field, Dr. Dossey has addressed audiences across multiple countries, contributing numerous research articles to scientific literature, and actively collaborating with food companies to promote insect protein as a staple ingredient. His efforts are aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the human food supply, thereby mitigating climate change and biodiversity loss.
Beyond his corporate endeavors, Dr. Dossey’s nonprofit initiative, the Invertebrate Studies Institute (www.isibugs.org ), is ambitious in its goal to establish the world’s largest biodome, insect zoo, and biotech facility. This visionary project envisions a real-life Jurassic Park, complete with an array of plants and insects, fostering education and scientific exploration such as drug discovery and sequencing the genomes of all insect species, while inspiring visitors to champion biodiversity preservation.
Dr. Dossey firmly believes that fostering appreciation for Earth’s incredible biodiversity requires direct exposure to its wonders. He envisions this biodome as a crown jewel, engaging visitors to embrace the value of biodiversity through firsthand experiences with captivating species, and encouraging support for the conservation of life on our planet.
Dr. Aaron T. Dossey is far more than an entomological expert; he represents a visionary force driving change in sustainable food systems, biodiversity conservation, and scientific exploration. Driven by an unyielding commitment to innovation and positive impact, he is currently seeking investors who share his bold vision for a sustainable future.
