Labstat International has appointed Willie J. McKinney to its scientific and strategic advisory board. McKinney’s regulatory and scientific expertise of nicotine-containing and cannabidiol-containing products will help guide Labstat in strategy development, internal program conceptualization and internal scientific research.
