Pheronym is presenting our technology at 1 Million Cups. Join us on Wednesday, April 12 from 8:30 to 10:30 AM to learn more about our technology at Agstart Incubator, Woodland, CA.
Dr. Kaplan is honored to be among the amazing panelist on a webinar by the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) free online webinar, “Together in Innovation: Agricultural advances.
Expert panelists covered:
If you missed the webinar on Feb 28, you have a second chance.
A brief highlight of the webinar and how Pheronym utilized USPTO sources is on Medium.
Dr. Kaplan talked to the 2nd year Bio students at UC Davis BioLaunch Career Lab on Feb 10, 2023, about her career path, Pheronym, and our technology harnessing pheromones to create climate-resilient pest control solutions for farmers.
We thank Professor Carrie Ozeran for this opportunity to connect with UC Davis undergraduate students.
Pheronym is also looking for interns. If you are interested, find us in UC Davis Handshake.
Dr. Fatma Kaplan, Pheronym’s CEO and founder, was a guest on the Joe Gardener podcast. They talked about how lab-produced pheromones can be used to repel pest nematodes and stimulate beneficial nematodes for insect control.

Dr. Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym, is honored to be a speaker at the Nematode Division Symposium at the 2022 International Congress on Invertebrate Pathology and Microbial Control, Nelson Mandela Bay, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
She talked about “Dynamics of entomopathogenic nematode foraging and infectivity in microgravity.”

The three-year project is titled “Chemical cues from beneficial nematodes enhance plant resistance and strengthen biological control.” It was funded by U.S. Department of AgricultureNational Institute of Food and Agriculture through the Pests and Beneficial Species in Agricultural Production Systems Program.
The $680,000 grant will expand the work Helms began as a postdoctoral fellowship study in 2017. Helms is collaborating with David Shapiro-Ilan, Ph.D., at the USDA-ARS Southeastern Fruit and Tree Nut Research Station in Byron, Georgia, and Fatma Kaplan, Ph.D., at Pheronym Inc. in Woodland, California. Shapiro-Ilan and Kaplan have extensive experience and expertise focusing on nematodes and nematode pheromones, respectively.
Aside from their knowledge about EPNs, Helms said Shapiro-Ilan and Kaplan also provide expertise regarding potential commercial applications of the research to make EPNs a viable option for various users.
Thank you Monte Bottens for hosting us on the AgEmerge Podcast and the opportunity to talk about the science behind our nematode pheromone technology and cost-effective environmentally friendly pest control for farmers.
The AgEmerge Podcast features new ideas, grower insights, research, and emerging technology.
