John George, Research Scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in scientific research.
Dr. George provided superior service from 1982 to 2017 as a deputy group leader and research and development scientist with Los Alamos National Laboratory, one of the largest science and technology institutions in the world which conducts multidisciplinary research in fields such as national security, space exploration, nuclear fusion, renewable energy, medicine, nanotechnology, and supercomputing. He had obtained a Doctor of Philosophy from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee in 1986.
In addition, Dr. George has prospered since 2017 as principal scientific researcher with New Mexico Consortium, a non-profit corporation formed by three New Mexico universities in order to facilitate research in the state of New Mexico and specifically to increase research collaborations between universities, industry and Los Alamos National Laboratory. He has served as the president of Altara Aviation Research since 2018.
Among Dr. George’s research subjects have been the development of: an artificial retina, technologies to measure neurological function, optical methods of looking at individual cells and technology to measure magnetic fields of activity produced by the brain. Initially interested in architecture and medicine, Dr. George decided upon science when he realized its potential to make radical change.
As a career highlight, Dr. George cites working on the artificial retina project. He had always wanted to develop an artificial eye that could process and transfer the information to the brain, and he was lucky enough to work on a project like this about 10 years ago. It became an FDA approved medical device in 2012. In the coming years, he would still like to remain involved in a number of projects about imaging neuro function and trying to understand how visual information is processed by the brain.
