The origin can be traced to conversations in 2007 among Gloucester neighbors, deeply concerned about the weight of the struggling fishing industry on the local economy.
In time, with a mission crystallized and objectives clearly defined, Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute (GMGI) was founded in 2013 by three entrepreneurial scientists with legendary experience in the sciences of genomics and proteomics – Greg Verdine, Marc Vidal and David Walt – along with a prominent Gloucester businesswoman – Sheree Zizik.
Taken together, the founders have a unique chemistry of experiences in science and commerce. This has enabled GMGI to accomplish a great deal in a short period of time and to attract a growing group of people with complementary skill sets, all equally committed to the mission.
