J. C. Spencer is founder and CEO of The Endowment for Medical Research. He is a businessman, husband, father and grandfather living in Houston, Texas. He grew up being trained in business and manufacturing in the family-operated food packing company and milling company in Southwestern Missouri. Science was his love, and the refinement and perfection of any manufacturing and engineering process was his joy. His passion for science and a talent for graphics and photography led him to create a representative position with one of the largest color printing companies in the U.S. It was here that he learned the synergy of finding a need and filling it. He has worked as a consultant for many engineering and manufacturing corporations which gave him a unique and broad perspective in operations management. Over the years, Mr. Spencer expanded his ventures into various areas of science and finance. He has studied the science of the brain much of his life, and this book is the culmination of years of study and research. He has lectured internationally and currently speaks about glycomics and brain function. He has lectured on the science at Vanderbilt University and covers many aspects of health improvement for groups across the country. His passion to research and develop ways and means for improving brain function in children and adults benefits all of us. He is the author of the book, Expand Your Mind – Improve Your Brain.
The Endowment for Medical Research, a 501(c)(3) non-profit faith-based medical research and education public charity and think tank based in Houston, Texas, conducts nutritional surveys throughout the United States, Canada, and some foreign countries.
