Dr. Bernie May - Founder and Chief Financial Officer of the GVL, Emeritus Adjunct Professor

Research Interests

During Career: During my professional career (University of Washington, University of Maine, The Pennsylvania State University, Cornell University, and University of California at Davis) I worked on a diversity of organisms and with a great number of researchers. My interest was not in specific organisms or specific questions, but rather in generating genetic data to help others answer their scientific questions. I was also heavily involved in the education of graduate students and helping them gain graduate degrees and achieve success in their career objectives.

Current: Helping current graduate students, early career professionals, and former GVL alums optimize their career aspirations through personal discussions and making connections for them with others.
