Areas of Expertise
Grant Writing and Advising
I have been successful in procuring non-dilutive grant funding for my own medical research and for others from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Department of Defense (DoD). I have also been a grant reviewer so I have a thorough understanding of the review process.
Biomedical engineering with nanotechnology specialty
I have a PhD in Biomedical Engineering and have focused my career on using nanotechnology to enable novel medical solutions. My projects have included nanomaterials for implantable devices, engineered nanoparticles for cancer therapy, nanocomposites for cardiovascular interventions, and nanoparticles for medical imaging applications.
Business advisor with a focus on startups
Complementing my technical background in biomedical engineering, I have an MBA in Entrepreneurship and 20 years experience working with startups. I have worked with numerous medtech and biotech startups in various roles including as an employee, as a founder, as a Board member, and as an advisor.
ABIn 2010, Gareth pulled together disparate spreadsheet info and verbiage into a coherent, logical grant request package for submission to to DARPA on time. This wasn't easy, considering that there were three separate learning institutions involved, together with our little company. If you need similar help responding to governmental grant request, I don't hesitate to recommend Gareth.
