Meet our Scientific Advisory Board

Meet our Scientific Advisory Board

At 82 Labs, our goal is to use science to help you feel energized, stay productive, and be your best. We are devoted to tackling real world problems with academic rigor and technical innovation. With help from our advisors at the University of Southern California (USC), we launched our first product, Morning Recovery, aimed at liver health and productivity.

Earlier this year, we announced our partnership with USC’s School of Pharmacy as we donated $230,000 to form the 82 Labs Inc. Research Fund. Our advisors, Dr. Liang and Dr. Davies, are using this donation to drive innovation in finding novel applications for dihydromyricetin (DHM) beyond Morning Recovery.

Today, we are excited to announce our new Scientific Advisory Board to continue on our promise to harness the latest research, proprietary extraction methods, and proven ingredients to help you be your best. They will advise on developing safe, effective, and innovative products that work. Take a look at who makes up the leadership team:
