Julian Gordon has, over the course of his career, made groundbreaking contributions to multiple fields of science. His group at Abbott Labs was responsible for developing lateral flow immunoassay technology, which led to the first home pregnancy tests. Prior to Abbott Labs, his group at Novartis (then CIBA-GEIGY) was responsible for inventing the Western Blot, an important method used today in molecular biology, biochemistry and immunogenetics for the characterization and detection of proteins.
In addition to developing new technologies, Julian has honed his skills in intellectual property creation, development, prosecution, business development and licensing. He has brought together all of his experiences and skills to found Inspirotec.
