Product Chemistry and Optimizing Wide Area Adulticiding



On June 30 at 1:30 p.m. EDT, Target Specialty Products will host an interactive webinar titled “Product Chemistry and Optimizing Wide Area Adulticiding,” which will introduce you to how active ingredients are developed into solutions.

Attendees will learn why formulations are designed in the matter they are, how the design is as crucial as the active and why formulations perform different than active ingredients alone.

The webinar will feature Dr. Kurt Vandock, head of public health for Bayer Environmental Science. In this role, he supports government, industry and research stakeholders in their mission to protect the public from health threats. Dr. Vandock has been with Bayer for over nine years and previously was in the Research and Development division as a Senior Scientist. He has numerous publications and patents to his name and actively contributes to the academic community. Dr. Vandock is a frequent guest speaker for Public Health and Pest Control associations and says he “takes great pride in his ability to reduce complex issues to manageable solutions.” Regardless of the situation, Dr. Vandock says, he always has one goal: Protecting public health.

He will provide a background on the impact and significance of wildlife and wildlife-associated diseases.
