Dr. Brooks has been involved in management of several tech start-up ventures developing bone void filler, ultrasensitive detection of prion proteins, and computer programming. He received his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and MBA from the University of Wyoming, with one year as a visiting researcher at The Scripps Research Institute where he studied ultrasensitive detection of proteins using microarrays and other ultrasensitive immunoassays. Dr. Brooks completed his postdoctoral fellowship from the University of Utah in Pharmaceutics where he managed projects including effects of nanoparticles on coagulation cascade, protein microarrays, and drug releasing polymers for orthopedic applications.
