Lawrence, Kan., 9 Aug, 2016 – Integrated Animal Health (IAH), a global company focused on identifying and commercializing new-to-the-world animal health solutions, announced initiation of six separate research trials.
It is also announcing today that Dr Tom Hemling, formerly Global Head of R&D at De Laval, has joined the company as its Director of Research on a consulting basis. Dr Hemling is one of the world’s foremost experts on dairy and has dozens of papers to his credit on a wide variety of dairy related issues.
Dr Blake Hawley, IAH President and CEO, said, “We are very pleased to have Tom join us. His wealth of knowledge and experience is a phenomenal asset for us, and his global contacts are, arguably, unparalleled in the dairy industry. I have known Tom for quite some time now and he is a tremendous at helping IAH evaluate new technologies, intellectual property and patent strength.”
Dr Hemling commented, “I have spent the past 24 years working on innovation in prevention of disease in food producing animals. With the current increased pressure to reduce the use of antibiotics in animals, the need for novel approaches to maintain animal welfare is even greater. Innovations will likely occur in better preventative products and methods, improved nutritional management, and both innate and adaptive immune stimulation. These approaches will help lessen the demand for antibiotics, and help meet consumer demands for more organic food production. Integrated Animal Health is focusing on developing these technologies and delivering the data packages to bring these to market. I am happy to help the IAH team find and develop these transformative, novel technologies.”
In other news, IAH is now progressing multiple trials with multiple species and partners.

“We are excited to accelerate some of our top product candidates through these trials. We are developing solid, field and clinical data to demonstrate efficacy. Developing these ground-breaking technologies including a line of natural, nutritional products, will substantially add to our existing suite of products,” said Dr. Blake Hawley.
IAH has taken five products to market in very short periods compared to traditional animal health companies by conducting early commercial proof of concept studies. Headquartered at the Bioscience & Technology Business Center outside the Kansas University Campus in Lawrence, Kan., the company has strong ties to the Animal Health Corridor and plans to perform its FDA CVM trials for its prescription products in the Midwest.
IAH has a corporate mission that all products must fit into the existing workflow of farmer and ranchers or meet the lifestyle demands of pet owners.
“No matter how innovative the technology appears, if you can’t use it on the farm with ease, we don’t want to struggle commercializing it. We look for breakthrough technologies that deliver results, both in the animal and for those who deliver it,” Dr. Hawley said.
