Larry P.G. Forsley
Executive Director of Biopharmaceutical Division
Lawrence P. G. Forsley is Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President of Global Energy Corporation in Annandale, Virginia, USA. GEC develops and provides green nuclear energy solutions. During the past 30 years, he has worked on laser fusion, mirror fusion, tokamaks, modular bremsstrahlung sources, sonoluminescence, bulk Pd/D electrolysis, and SPAWAR co-deposition.
He has specialized in temporally, spatially, and spectrally resolving infrared through gamma ray energy photons, charged particles, and neutrons. In his spare time, he's developed and deployed autonomous seismic sensors around the world and applied space-based Differential Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (DInSAR) to places hard to pronounce, let alone write home from.
He develops and promotes the appropriate application of technology, especially using indigenous materials, and environmentally and economically sustainable activities with the local community as stake-holders. Think local, act local, be global!
Becoming a World Leader in Sustainable Aquaculture
PAC'S mission is to become a world leader in the sea cucumber farming industry, providing unique and innovative aquaculture solutions to third-world countries that promote sustainable economic, environmental, and human development.
Joint Venture Revenue Sharing
PAC offers trade, commerce, joint venture revenue sharing, sustainability of marine and other natural resources, and the propagation of new and nutritious foods, as well as new sources of biological material for production of the next generation of pharmaceutical wonder drugs.
Exemplify Social and Environmental Responsibility
PAC exemplifies social and environmental responsibility through the application of and training in practical sea farming methodologies that will create meaningful and productive jobs in less-developed countries.
Sea cucumber fishing is very important to the livelihoods of coastal communities, particularly artisanal and small scale fishers in developing countries. Therefore, socio-economic issues in sea cucumber fisheries are important and should be recognized and incorporated in fishery management programmes. In particular, livelihood options should be made available to fishers if management regulation put restrictions on the fisheries, such as bans on fishing.

Limitations in our current antiviral treatment options and the continuing emergence of new pathogenic viruses have contributed to a growing need for new and effective chemotherapeutic agents to treat viral diseases. The marine environment provides a rich source of chemical diversity for the screening and identification of new compounds with desirable antiviral properties. Many of the new and structurally distinct metabolites that have been found in marine algae, invertebrate animals, and microorganisms have pronounced biological activities and constitute a valuable chemical resource for the discovery of lead compounds that may aid in the development of new antiviral therapies.
