John Dubendorff is an experienced molecular biologist/biochemist who brings an extensive knowledge of recombinant DNA technology and protein expression and function to projects at Nanoprobes. His experience includes spells as a Guest Researcher at the University of Vienna Biocenter (Vienna, Austria), research in the Department of Pathology at Stanford University, and postdoctoral research in the Biology Department (link) at Brookhaven National Laboratory and the Department of Microbiology at SUNY Stony Brook. He holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Colorado, Boulder (1985), and M.S. (1978) and B.S. (1977) degrees in Chemistry from Emory University.
