About Us

Do you really want to know who we are? Or is what you’re looking for a list of what we do? Because, most of the time, when we ask someone who they are, they respond with what they do. We can give you that list. It would be easy. It would include programs, and awards, and on and on. But who we are is different.

Who we are is people! People like Johnny Lupinacci, who is pictured at the left. Our people are fun, smart, good researchers, who care about our Grand Challenges and who are doing everything they can to help solve them!

Our podcast aims to highlight them… through their great work.
