Polysciences, Inc., an award-winning company specializing in the development and manufacture of high purity chemicals and reagents for laboratory research, histology, healthcare diagnostics and medical devices, has named Dr. Joël Coret as Chief Technology Officer. Dr. Coret will assume the responsibilities of Dr. Robert Gleim, Ph.D. who retired in March after 8 years at Polysciences as Chief Technology Officer & Vice President, Custom Synthesis Division.
Dr. Coret brings over 20 years of experience in the chemical industry, focused on technology development, developing IP and IP position strategies, as well as building relationships with external partners.

His involvement will assist us in continuing to provide flexible support to our customers as well as develop commercial opportunities in the medical device and drug delivery segments.”
Dr. Coret studied Physical and Organic Chemistry at Paul Sabatier University and the Polytechnic Institute in Toulouse, France and received his doctorate for his research on delivery of actives across bio-membranes from Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France. Specializing in interfacial chemistry, he has studied the optimization of active delivery from formulations in a number of industrial, agricultural and consumer applications.
