Dr. Globus earned her M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Moscow Energy Institute and her Ph.D. in Semiconductor Physics from the Moscow Institute of Applied Physics. She has served on the faculty at the University of Virginia since 1993. Dr. Globus is a leading innovator in the field of terahertz/bio interactions, and her research has opened the new and very fruitful field of terahertz vibrational spectroscopy of DNA and other biological materials for detecting, identifying, and characterizing biological macromolecules and microorganisms. In parallel with experimental characterization of materials, she is developing computational modeling techniques to simulate THz spectroscopic signatures of large macromolecules of DNA, RNA, proteins and other molecular components of bacteria and other cells. Most recently, she has advanced her research by developing a complete THz biosensing system for environmental and medical applications that operates at room temperature. She co-founded Vibratess, LLC in 2007 to develop and commercialize this technology. Her researh has been funded by the Department of Threat Reduction and Assessment, (DTRA), Army Research Office (ARO), the Multi University Research Iniative (MURI), and the National Science Foundation (NSF). 

CO-FOUNDER AND chief Scientist

Dr. Boris Gelmont

Physical Science, PhD, Doctor of Science, Ioffe Physico-Tech Institute, St. Petersburg, Russia

Dr. Gelmont earned his M.Sc. (Honors) in Electrical Engineering from Leningrad Electrical Engineering University, St. Petersburg, Russia, and both his Ph.D. and Sc.D. in Physics and Mathematics from Ioffe Institute of Physics and Technology in St. Petersburg. The Presidium of the Supreme Soviet awarded Dr. Gelmont the State Prize for advancement of scientific research, which is the highest Soviet Award in Science and Technology. He has served on the faculty of the University of Virginia since 1990. He has more than 350 publications and presentations. He holds patents in solid-state physics and solid-state devices. His current research interests include the physics of condensed matter and electronic devices, the latter involving novel semiconductor and modeling devices. His research is supported by the Army Research Office (ARO).
