WASHINGTON — The Council for Responsible Nutrition on Monday named Taylor Wallace to the post of senior director, scientific and regulatory affairs.
“Dr. Wallace’s background will nicely complement that of our well-established scientific team, and we’re looking forward to the fresh perspective his background will provide,” CRN president and CEO Steve Mister said. “We were impressed with the amount of work he has published in his short career along with the relationships he has built within the scientific research community.”
In his new position at CRN, Wallace will join his colleagues in interpreting and contributing to the scientific literature surrounding dietary supplements and nutrition, as well as working with CRN’s member companies on a variety of regulatory issues affecting the supplement industry.
Most recently, Wallace served as the scientific communications program manager at the International Life Sciences Institute, North America. In this position, he was part of a scientific staff that identified, analyzed and communicated science-based information related to food science, nutrition, safety and risk assessment to the scientific community and general public. His specific duties also included developing communications strategies to enhance the impact and dissemination of this information. He earned his Ph.D. in food science and technology from The Ohio State University.
Wallace succeeds CRN’s former SVP, scientific and regulatory affairs, Andrew Shao, who accepted a position at Herbalife earlier this year.
In addition to Wallace, CRN’s science team includes John Hathcock, Duffy MacKay and consultant and former CRN president, Annette Dickinson.
