Interview with Dr Thomas and National Ski Patrol

Professor Emeritus  John G. Thomas, PhD, is recognized as an “International Educator  and Global Microbiologist “ (www.globalbugs.com) having lectured  in more than  43 countries while  a clinical microbiologist in pathology (Professor),  dentistry (Clinical Professor) and Graduate School Education (Adjunct Professor) for 54 years ,  his research emphasizing   biofilms and medical devices.  He has recently focused upon micro 3-D- bio Printing of contour fitting gauzes using bio-plastics and unique Prebiotics with Therapeutic Bacteria (Beneficial Bacteria) for chronic wound intervention (SMarT Gauze); this integrates a common pathway, visualized through his ‘Microbial Clock’ and recently created Center of Hologenomic Clinical Studies (www.globalbugs.com/Hologenomic Center) which underscores a “Dual Citizenship” and co evolution of symbiotic microbes and human ecosystems. “Microbes Matter”.  His Probiotic Solutions integrates Computer Decision Support for Probiotic (Beneficial Bacteria) Guidelines combining AI, Artificial Intelligence and Precision Medicine, expanded recently to emphasize Chronic Wound Care and Aging, hypothesized now as a disease.
