Dr. B. has been a senior executive in the life sciences and medical devices sectors for twenty years. He led the development of the first high-throughput DNA sequencing system, used for much of the Human Genome Project. As a Director of Business Development at SRI International, he managed business development for molecular diagnostics, medical devices, and computational biology. He has also served as VP of Strategic Business Development at Triple Ring Technology, a medical device contract engineering firm, and VP of Business Development at Zymera, Inc., a start-up molecular diagnostics company. In 2014, he launched ViziMed, an online resource for patient education about commonly used pharmaceuticals. He serves on the Life Sciences committee for Astia, advising entrepreneurs and potential investors, and is a Managing Director at Remo Medical, a medical device and biotechnology management group.

Dr. B. received his BS from the University of Arizona as a Chemistry/Physics double major, his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Indiana University and his MBA from Santa Clara University. He volunteers in Cub Scouts (past Committee Chairman) and Boy Scouts. He has been a dedicated educator for his employees, clients, scouts, and continues to apply that dedication to augmenting educational programs through his tutoring services.

He is an experienced scientist across chemistry, physics, and biology, which requires extensive use of higher level math.

BS double major in Chemistry & Physics, Ph.D. in Chemistry, two Post-docs in Biophysics.
