WOODBRIDGE, Conn. (PRWEB) March 04, 2021
P2 Science Inc., a green chemistry company, announced that Patrick Foley has transitioned to a new full-time role leading strategic technology advisory programs as part of its Scientific Advisory Board. Foley will join Paul Anastas, who currently chairs the Scientific Advisory Board.
Most recently, Foley, a co-founder of P2, served as the company’s Chief Science Officer until the end of 2020.
“Patrick has been a huge creative force from day one of P2 and has built for us a world class technology portfolio. Today, the company is seeing great success in commercializing that technology in markets including cosmetics, fragrances and polymers,” said Neil Burns, P2’s CEO. “Last year, Patrick came to me with the idea of moving into a more strategic role where he could focus on big new technology ideas and keep in closer touch with our major collaborators. I was thrilled to be able to facilitate this transition.”
Foley graduated with a PhD from Yale University where he was a member of the first doctoral class at the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering. It was at Yale that Foley and Professor Anastas formed P2 Science.
“It’s great to be continuing the important work of green chemistry innovation at P2 where we have a track record of commercializing meaningful new technology,” said Foley.
