Dr. German Garcia-Fresco obtained his BA/MS in organic chemistry/molecular biology from Purchase College, SUNY (Sigma Xi honor society). He earned his Ph.D. in molecular neurobiology at the University of North Carolina, with a focus on the interactions of proteins between myelin and the axon in rodents. He has received numerous awards, including the President’s Award for excellence in genetics and biochemistry.
As director of the Adaptive Neuroscience Research Institute (ANRI), Dr. German Garcia-Fresco helps people explore and enhance their own potential. The mission of ANRI is to collaborate with some of the world’s leaders in a variety of fields, including finance, neuroscience, psychology, nutrition, and business, using the latest technology available today.
As a scientist, Doctor Fresco’s research has led to advances in the field of neurobiology, contributing to mechanisms involved in neurodegenerative diseases. His work has been featured in top scientific journals as well as The New York Times and several news channels around the world.
Recently, he has been focused on the behavioral aspects of brain functioning, specifically decision making, emotional control, and creative enhancement. He is currently trying to develop techniques to increase neuronal performance and developing health and educational brain programs for children and adults.
Asides from his scientific interests, he is an avid entrepreneur and successfully operates a variety of companies in the United States. He’s the owner of Xtreme Park Adventures in Durham, North Carolina, which among other skill-building activities focuses on team building—a group effort in which all members of a team work together to achieve one goal in common. The group works in sync, combining their different abilities and strengths to focus all their energy and achieve their goals.
