Prior to coming to Marshall, Dr. John Maher was the Director of the Chemical Alliance Zone, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to continuing the existence of the chemical industry in Cabell, Kanawha, Putnam and Wayne counties. In this role, Dr. Maher was in charge of economic development; an experience that will be useful in developing certain aspects of the research component of the university. Dr. Maher holds an A.B. in Chemistry from Cornell University, and has a M.S. and a Ph.D. in Organic/Organometallic Chemistry, both from Harvard. His scientific background and drive for new business will no doubt further Marshall along the path to becoming a stronger research institution. Dr. Maher contributes to the MU-ADVANCE Faculty Development Initiatives as the MURC representative, who can advise us on research and grant issues.
