Ron Amundson (an artistic interpretation)

I learned about OpenWetWare from and I find biology fascinating, albeit I have had no formal education in the field, not even in high school. However, I do have 20+ years of product design experience, and many of my designs are used in the biotech world. Pretty much everything from thermal imaging to blood gas analyzers, to PET scanner subassemblies. My main focus for years was radiation thermometry, which then evolved into semiconductor process tools, but I still kept my hand in the medical arena.

That being said, I intend to listen a lot... Its interesting to see how people from different fields approach things.

Research interests

  1. De-centralized science education
  2. Laboratory automation
  3. Open source hardware of all types


  1. 've got a couple patents, and some fairly obscure research from uni years ago, but solid state nmr, and automotive tech is not exactly relevant to biology LOL, thus I'll leave this blank. Having the PubMed ID plugin otoh is uber cool. I miss Washington DC, used to hang out at the NLM on weekends. Yep, I'm a geek, [I]
