Mr. Venu Polineni
Managing Director - Telluris Biotech India Limited
Perhaps best described as the thread that binds us all together at Telluris, Mr. Venu is the commercial catalyst that has taken our unique products to the world. His journey into the world of plant-parasitic nematodes began when he was doing research under Dr. Alejandro Calderon-Urrea at Fresno State. On one of his trips home to India, he came across the plight of over 15,000 poly houses in Gujarat which were suffering due to plant-parasitic nematodes. Armed with the innovative solutions of Dr. Alejandro, Mr. Venu left a lucrative career in research at University of California, Merced to bring Telluris Biotech India Limited to life.
From building the team at Telluris India from scratch to expanding the scientific boundaries of the organization, his knowledge, calm demeanor, work ethics, and astute leadership are an inspiration to all who work with him at Telluris. His involvement at every level of the organization from the bottom-up makes him extremely approachable, friendly, and critical to the daily functioning of Telluris.
