Roger Nassar is a chemist with academic and industry experience in small molecule and polymer synthesis, microelectronics and biotechnology. Following a Ph.D. and Post-doctoral training in inorganic, organic, organometallic and fluorine chemistry, he applied his scientific skills to research and development in industry settings. Roger discovered and developed novel photo-lithographic materials, optimized and scaled up fluoro-surfactant production and surface modifications for microfluidic devices. These diverse assets in chemistry and its applications, combined with experience in product development, serve well to the establishment of new technologies.
In 2010, Roger started working on establishing novel drug-free technologies for fluid disinfection. His preliminary work focused on removing Influenza A and HIV-1 from buffer solution and whole human blood. The initial results are very encouraging and pave the way for investigations in environmental and therapeutic applications.
