Jeffrey C. Raber Ph.D.
Dr. Jeffrey C. Raber received his B.S. in biochemistry from Lebanon Valley College, PA and subsequently a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Southern California with an emphasis on developing new synthetic methodologies useful in pharmaceutical drug discovery and manufacturing. Dr. Raber studied botanical phylogenetic relationships based on the RuBisCO enzyme’s evolution while in college and was named to the USA Today 1997 All-USA College Academic Team for his research accomplishments in this area. While at USC he was awarded the Harold and Lillian Moulton Fellowship for his efforts on the construction of novel heterocycles and peptidomimetics utilizing a proprietary boron-based multicomponent condensation reaction. Since graduate school Dr. Raber has pursued various entrepreneurial endeavors highlighted by KinetiChem where he guides the development and commercialization of a novel continuous flow chemical reactor technology positioned at the forefront of what is called process intensification. Dr. Raber initially joined KinetiChem as the Chief Chemist and quickly became the Vice President and eventually the President and is currently on the company’s Board of Directors. Dr. Raber has numerous peer-reviewed publications, including 5 on cannabis chemistry, he has given invited lectures around the world and is also an inventor of multiple patented technologies. Driven by a desire to make a positive contribution to society while creating American jobs Dr. Raber founded The Werc Shop in 2010, an independent laboratory focused on botanical analysis, product development and sustainability with an initial emphasis on serving the unmet public health and safety needs within the medical cannabis community. Dr. Raber’s detailed investigations into the chemistry of cannabis as a medicine have provided him with a unique perspective and knowledgebase useful in assisting state and local regulators in the construction and implementation of effective regulatory solutions for the safe and sustainable delivery of medical cannabis to qualified patients. Today The Werc Shop is widely recognized as a leading scientific pioneer and educator in medical cannabis that continues to further everyone’s understanding of the plant and its possible product developments. The Werc Shop being guided Dr. Raber is recognized as leading the way towards chemotype designations for strain identification and are creating standardized broad- profile based derivative products through utilization of their innovative solvent-free concentrate processing methods coupled to a novel terpene infusion methodology which allows for the creation of unique and effective cannabis products across many therapeutic categories.
