William Gunn

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

William has been engaged in creating the future of science from the start. As a young child, he was fascinated by futuristic stories of science in Omni Magazine and Wired, leading him to get my PhD in the cutting edge field of stem cell biology. His first-hand experience with the inefficiencies and antiquities of "modern" academic research led him to join the team at Mendeley where he works on bringing modern network efficiencies to academic research.

His PhD work at Tulane involved self-guided experimental research on the relationship between Human Adult Stem Cells and multiple myeloma. His areas of expertise are bone biology, multiple myeloma, adult stem cells, animal models of bone disorders, and assay development. He previously served as the senior Assay Development Scientist at Genalyte, Inc, responsible for development of macro- and small molecule assays on the platform.
