Richard J. Laub, Ph.D.
MS, PhD, CChem, FRSC
Founder, Laub BioChemicals Corporation

Dr. Laub has had a lifelong passion for chemistry. After serving in Vietnam as a U.S. Marine, he pursued advanced degrees in chemistry and was awarded his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Hawaii. He served on the faculty of chemistry departments at The Ohio State University and San Diego State University. He was appointed a Chartered Chemist (CChem) of the Royal Institute of Chemistry (London) in 1978. He was elected a Fellow (FRSC) of the Royal Society of Chemistry (London) in 1988.

Through the course of various research projects resulting in his 125 published research papers, he became most interested in anti-viral agents. This interest led him to become focused on humic related substances and their strong anti-viral properties. After exhaustive study of naturally occurring sources and receiving 15 patents on synthetic production of these substances, Dr. Laub identified a specific source in the Rocky Mountains as being the most highly efficacious & naturally occurring anti-viral agent he had studied. Material from this source is purified and made into a soluble powder which is now available as Navia®.
