Introduction

Glenn Fox is the Associate Director of the Physical and Life Sciences Directorate.

After getting his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from the University of Colorado, Boulder, he served as a postdoctoral research associate with Brian Hoffman, at Northwestern University. His work involved the synthesis and characterization of molecular and polymeric polynucleating star(porphyrazine)(S8) and unsymmetrical porphyrazine systems. Glenn joined the research staff at LLNL in 1992, working on and leading numerous synthesis chemistry projects.

Other positions he has held at LLNL include serving as the director of the Forensic Science Center (FSC) from 2002-2006 and deputy division leader for science and technology for the CMS Directorate, 1999-2002. Glenn is a member of the executive committee for the FBI scientific working group, the Scientific Working Group for Forensic Analysis of Chemical, Biological, Radiolgical and Nuclear Terrorism (SWGCBRN).  He also is a member of the Food Emergency Response Network (FERN) national steering committee.
