Marcella Flores MPH PhD

President & CEO

Marcella Flores received her PhD from Columbia University in the department of Microbiology studying viral immune responses. She continued postdoctoral training at the Institute Cure in Paris and then later at Columbia University. Her work has been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at international conferences.  In 2015, during the long days of her post doc, Marcella decided to put incubation times in the lab to good use and began planning what is now The Reagent Project. Marcella currently spends her days spreading the word that sustainable science also means redistributing and reusing reagents that would otherwise be forgotten in our cold rooms.
