Dr. Wyatt N. Vreeland performed his PhD thesis research at Northwestern University in Chemical and Biological Engineering where he developed synthetic organic chemistries for production of large bio-mimetic molecules to be used in various genomic applications. After completing his Ph.D. research, Dr. Vreeland joined the microfluidic research group at NIST as a National Research Council (NRC) postdoctoral fellow under the mentorship of Dr. Laurie Locascio.
Dr. Vreeland is now a permanent member of NIST’s scientific research staff. In these duties he manages a research lab that develops novel microfluidic systems to create cutting-edge nanomaterials of interest in the biopharmaceutical community.
