In 2004, Dr. Marziali co-invented the concept of using synchronous mobility perturbations to create divergent velocity fields for selectively focusing nucleic acids. This technology, termed SCODA, is the basis of a spin-off company, Boreal Genomics Inc. founded in 2007 by Dr. Marziali and colleagues to commercialize high performance instruments for DNA enrichment, and now commercializing a blood-based cancer test.
Mr. Adams has over 20 years of strategic financial management experience in both public and private companies. He is the Chief Financial Officer of Response Biomedical Corp. and is a key member of the management team. This team is successfully restructuring the company to return to significant sales growth in international markets and has recently entered into a significant R&D and supply collaboration agreement with a China based company.
