Visikol is happy to announce that Dr. Graeme Gardner recently joined the team as a research scientist! He obtained his PhD in chemistry from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, where he specialized in bioinorganic and materials chemistry. He is passionate about bridging the gaps between compatible disciplines in chemistry and biology that suffer from a lack of intercommunication, and is excited to work on solving problems in tissue clearing. Dr. Gardner will focus on the development of Visikol HISTO for 3D histology and working to improve the characertization of complex and heterogenous tissues.
Michael met Dr. Gardner through their NSF IGERT Fellowships and worked together during their PhD work on the development of sustainable wastewater treatment systems. Dr. Gardner and Michael worked together on optimizing wastewater treatment systems in Argentina (below) and were finalists in the Agricultural Innovation Competition in 2014.
