Virginia Section of the American Chemical Society Recognizes George Karles
George, who currently holds 78 patents, is quick to cite the fact that research is a collaborative effort, and he said he feels fortunate to work at a company, with such high-caliber innovative peers and the resources, to do world-class research.
"My background is in chemical engineering, and my career has been at the intersection of several different disciplines and experiences," said George. "That's how I approach my work. I believe in the power of diversity, and I think of my inventions as a product of collaboration, which expands beyond the bounds of Altria to include many top-class partners."
