Ryan Ryall - Ryan is the LED lighting specialist for Ryall Group. He has extensive knowledge of LED lighting systems and controls that stems from his 6+ years in electrical distribution. Not only does he know about LED lighting technology but he has a deep understanding of photobiology, cannabis cultivation, cannabis genetics and the Colorado Medical and Recreational Marijuana laws. His understanding of how to apply advanced lighting technologies to maximize the genetic potential of each strain is unmatched in this industry. Now that he has been involved with the cannabis industry for the past six years he has continually gained real-world knowledge and experience along the way in the rapidly expanding cannabusiness environment. 

Neil Yorio - Neil's career started at NASA, Kennedy Space Center where he served a number of roles supporting the bioregenerative life support systems research program. With NASA, 20 years of active research involving a number of aspects of research devoted to keeping humans alive for long-duration space missions. This biological approach required a pant-based life support system where agronomic and horticultural crops were used for food production, oxygen generation, CO2 removal, and water purification for the space-based crew.  A major focus of this research was directed at electric lighting technology as the major cost driver and energy source for the biological life support system was light, specifically photosynthetically active radiation (PAR).  The work on spectral quality research immediately led to using LED solutions to replace energy intensive sources for plant lighting (HPS, MH).  Many of the peer-reviewed publications generated from the NASA research team are currently cited or at least mentioned in LED grow light marketing literature (often mis-quoted or mis-interpreted).  Now that Neil’s participating with the LED fixture and lamp manufacturing business, his strong foundation with the plant growth research side of LED technology puts him in a unique position of both understanding the lighting requirements (spectral and intensity), as well as understanding the manufacturing and performance requirements for product development.  He actively supports BIOS' distribution network with product specific applications, installation optimizations, and horticultural issues associated with the incorporation of LED technology in controlled environment agricultural facilities.  Neil is the author or co-author of 55 peer-reviewed publications, 6 technical memoranda, 1 book chapter, and 1 patent.
