12 JOHN C. HOLLIDAY Mycology: Formed Mushrooms Maui, a culinary mushroom cultivation company in 1997, Cultivating exotic species of medicinal and gourmet mushrooms. Sold this company to Aloha Medicinals Inc. in Jan 2000 Director of Research for Aloha Medicinals Inc. since Jan. 2000, responsible for all aspects of cultivating over 4000 species of medicinal fungi Mar 2002 to June 2007 Managing Director and Director of Research of Pacific Myco Products division of Aloha Medicinals Inc. in Santa Cruz, CA. July 2007 to present President and Director of Research for Aloha Medicinals Inc. at their main research and manufacturing facility in Carson City, NV, Which has a monthly production capacity in excess of 400,000 kgs per month of finished mushroom products, making this the largest medicinal mushroom production facility in the world. This equates to more than sixteen million bottles of health supplements per month. This plant currently produces more than 50% of the total Cordyceps consumed in the world. Feb 2002 to Present Managing Director of the AMI Mycology Culture Bank, a unique collection of over 11,000 cultures of medicinally and industrially important fungal strains. Misc. Data: He first became interested in growing mushrooms in As a hobby, he cultivated many varieties of mushrooms from 1976 until 1997, at which time he started a company called Mushrooms Maui. Managing this company became his full time job, until he sold this company to Aloha Medicinals, Inc in Jan As President and Director of Research at Aloha Medicinals, he is responsible for the acquisition of rare Medicinal Mushroom strains, their cultivation, and research into the medicinal properties of the mushrooms. Aloha Medicinals has brought onto the market more than 60 different Medicinal Mushroom formulations since 2000, several of which have received drug approval in various countries. As Director of Research for Aloha Medicinals Inc, he was and is responsible for the design and conduct of several Human Clinical Trials, including a very successful trial using one of Aloha Medicinals formulations (Immune-Assist Critical Care Formula ) in the treatment of advanced stages of Cancer. He was also responsible for another extremely successful clinical trial with the same product for the treatment of Hepatitis and another trial on Alcoholic Liver Disease, as well as a clinical trial conducted in Ghana, Africa, testing our third-generation Medicinal Mushroom formulation (Immune-Assist 247 ) for the treatment and control of HIV/AIDS. This trial showed HIV to be a manageable disease when caught in the early stages. In this trial, patients testing positive for HIV but who still have a high T-cell counts are given Immune-Assist 247 daily, to keep the T-cell count from declining, and thereby extending the period of time before a compromise of the immune system occurs and therapy with antiretroviral drugs must begin. This may very well herald in an entirely new way to treat this dreaded disease, using a low cost, non-toxic medication to manage HIV, making this a manageable disease in much the same way that diabetes is managed with the use of insulin. This could dramatically change the long-term outlook for HIV patients worldwide. In April of 2002, Aloha Medicinals Inc. took over operation of the oldest mushroom research company on the West Coast of the United States, formerly Stoller Research Lab. This facility, which has been in continuous research and production of mushroom products since 1955, has been completely re-tooled and re-organized to maximize the production of specific medicinal compounds from mushrooms, specializing in Cordyceps sinensis. He is presently managing the operations at the Aloha Medicinals Inc. research and manufacturing facility in Nevada and oversee the production of all the raw materials for Aloha Medicinals line of medicinal and health supplement products, as well as supplying raw material into the research and nutraceutical fields for human and veterinary medicine. With his extensive background in mechanical engineering, and his extensive knowledge of fungal biology, he was able to design and built most of the equipment and infrastructure used in his unique production methodology. The combination of the unique production methods that he has developed, and the specific-application machinery which he has designed, is what makes Aloha Medicinals the major medicinal mushroom production company in the world today. Utilizing these new production methods, we are able to produce medicinal mushroom products that are not only of a greater consistency and potency than has ever been possible in the past, but also to produce these more cost effectively than any other bio-tech lab in the world. He has conducted several seminars on mushroom cultivation techniques, and presently act as a Mycology Consultant for the Government of Ghana, the Denman Island Forest Products Co-Op in Denman Island, Canada, and a large number of Culinary and Medicinal Mushroom production Companies. He is on the editorial board of the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms, and is the peer-reviewer for a number of professional journals on Cordyceps and other medicinal fungi. He is the only Non-African ever to be elected to the Executive Committee of the African Society of Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms (ASEMM). He is also Vice President of the International Society for Medicinal Mushrooms (ISMM)
