Our CEO, Dr. Kaplan, is presenting Pheronym’s technology at the LEEP Demo Day 2023 organized by Chain Reaction Innovationsin Chicago, IL, on June 7.
The event will showcase 20+ startups from the DOE Lab-Embedded Entrepreneur Program (LEEP), including Chain Reaction Innovations at Argonne National Laboratory, Innovation Crossroads at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Cyclotron Road at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and West Gate at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Pheronym is honored to be among the amazing startups and be part of the Cyclotron Road program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Listen to our pitch in person on June 7, 2023, at 4:30 PM, at the Sheraton Grand Chicago Riverwalk in Chicago, IL.
Stop by our booth to talk to us at 6 PM.
If you missed the LEEP demo day, you can listen to the Pheronym’s technology on youtube.
Join Dr.Kaplan on November 9, 2022 at 12:10 PM- 2:00 PM PST for “Nematode pheromone extracts act as boosters for entomopathogenic nematodes’ efficacy to control agricultural pests in the soil” as part of the WSU Molecular Plant Sciences Seminar Series. She will discuss beneficial nematodes, pheromone extracts, and their impact on controlling agricultural pests!
The seminar will be held on zoom through the Molecular Plant Sciences Graduate Program at WSU.
Join the discussion on Sept 14th, 2022 at 2 PM (EST) with Dr. Fatma Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym, Dr. David Shapiro,Research Leader at USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) SE Fruit and Tree Nut Research Unit in Byron, GA, and Dr. Jacob Parnell, Sr. Agronomist at Biome Makers, as they discuss how entomopathogenic nematodes and their pheromones can provide unforeseen benefits to soil health and cropping systems.
Learn more about:
Assessing the efficacy of beneficial nematodes with and without the pheromones.
Demonstrating product performance.
Measuring the effects of biological ag inputs on the soil microbiome of peach orchards.
Soil insight into functionality, hormone production, and stress adaptation.

This symposium highlights innovative young companies in crop yield enhancement, describing their technical offerings and business models. There will also be discussions on the opportunities and pitfalls of forming a new company in agricultural yield and how these new companies will advance into sustainable agricultural practices and regulatory frameworks.
“Scientist Spotlight” at the Abraham Lincoln High School in San Francisco on November 19, 2021. Dr. Kaplan will be talking about Pheronym’s technology and how nematodes are beneficial to agricultural pest control. She will also be sharing about her career and education path!
“Researchers at ARS’s Southeastern Fruit and Tree Nut Research Station in Byron, GA, teamed with Pheronym, Inc., a company that specializes in eco-friendly pest control, to send beneficial nematodes, known as entomopathogenic nematodes, to the International Space Station (ISS) to study their ability to function under microgravity conditions.” Keep Reading
