Australian biotechnology company Marinova has launched the Marinova Graduate Program – a professional one year program designed to support the next generation of fucoidan experts.
Marinova is the global leader in the research, development and manufacture of fucoidan compounds – highly bioactive polysaccharides derived from select species of brown seaweed. High purity fucoidan is an innovative ingredient sought after for a range of nutritional, cosmetic and animal health applications.
Speaking of Marinova Graduate Program, company CEO Paul Garrott said: “As the world’s only producer of high purity, certified organic fucoidan with global regulatory acceptance, Marinova is committed to nurturing the next generation of fucoidan experts. Our exceptional leadership team will be mentoring our first graduate over the course of the next 12 months, providing experience across all facets of the company’s operations. Following successful completion of the program, graduates are offered a permanent role at Marinova in the area most suited to their skillset and interests.”
