ASCENGEN FOUNDER

Wm. McNair, PhD: Biophysics and Genetics

Dr. William McNair

 

CONTRACTOR

 

William grew up in the South around construction. His father, a commercial contractor, encouraged his early career successes in project management. In 1992, he moved to Colorado and worked on medium-sized (up to 21M) commercial and institutional jobs, and high-end private homes. While coordinating clinicians’ design needs in the build-out of a research and treatment facility, he discovered clinical research. 

SCIENTIST

 

William began pursuing undergraduate pre-requisites for a clinical research degree in 1998 while interning with the University of Colorado's Cardiovascular Institute (CUCVI).  He departed holding a dual PhD (Genetics and Biophysics) from CU's Human Medical Genetics Program in order to attend medical school. However, he found the state and practice of institutional medicine dissatisfying and left as a student-in-good-standing prior to completion. 

ENTREPRENEUR

 

In 2012, as an alternative to practicing medicine or pursuing mainstream academic research, William focused on consulting and entrepreneurial start-ups in the novel Colorado Cannabis industry.  In 2018, he founded Ascengen as a vehicle for developing proof-of-concept innovative bioscience technology to be applied in the production of designer Cannabis products.
