Medical and Research Directors

NST’s US Medical director, Dr. John Abernethy MD, owns and runs a clinical research organization that has conducted more than 50 IRB clinical trials for pharmaceutical and food companies. Dr. Abernethy is a Board Certified physician and is a staff member at the University of Florida, Medical School. NST’s Foreign Medical Director located Mumbai is Dr. Dilip Mehta. Dr. Mehta did his post-graduate work at Penn State University and has successfully developed and patented several technologies in a variety of fields, including medicine. Dr. Mehta, manages NST’s team of Medical and Scientific professionals who cover a very broad range of expertise. Dr. Mehta brings over 35 years of R&D, Clinical Trial and Basic Research experience to NST.¬† Dr. Abernethy and Dr. Mehta lead NST’s Board of Medical and Research Directors as well as our clinical research team.

This gives NST a very unique advantage as we are able to design and conduct effective clinical trials at a highly reduced cost. Clinical studies are often avoided by companies in the dietary supplement, nutrition and food industries as they are extremely costly; with this distinct advantage, NST is capable of substantiating the products we work with by testing in a clinical setting. Safety, efficacy, tolerance and compliance are be verified and if the data warrants, the information can be published or used to file patents. This is a very unique advantage for NST as no other ingredient suppliers or formulation/production companies have similar access to costly clinical research.
