William Gunn currently serves as the Head of Academic Outreach for Mendeley, a research management tool for collaboration and discovery.
Previously, Gunn did assay development for Genalyte, a molecular diagnostics startup. His work involved developing protein, DNA, and small molecule assays on their novel high-throughput assay platform.
He received his PhD from Tulane University. His dissertation dealt with development of a model of multiple myeloma in mice, using it to test small molecule inhibitors of the interaction between multiple myeloma and bone precursor cells, promoting bone regeneration and repair of osteolytic lesions.
