Checking in with our Innovators: Aries Loumis

Ian Hamilton, who participated in the 2016 Bootcamp, is now participating in the Chain Reaction Innovations program at Argonne National Lab. The program is modeled after Cyclotron Road at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, a 2016 Bootcamp supporter. It aims to bring business-minded scientists into contact with lab experts in order to push their science and their companies closer to market.
