Dr. Robert Birge received his B.S. degree in chemistry from Yale University in 1968, his PhD. in chemical physics from Wesleyan University in 1972, and was a National Institutes of Health postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University from 1973-1975.  He was an Assistant and subsequently a tenured Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Riverside (1975-1984), and then served as Professor and Head of the Chemistry Department at Carnegie Mellon University (1984 - 1987). He joined the faculty at Syracuse University in 1988 where he was a University Professor of Chemistry and Physics, Director of the W. M. Keck Center for Molecular Electronics and Research Director of the New York State Center for Advanced Technology in Computer Applications and Software Engineering. In January 2000, he joined the faculty at University of Connecticut where he holds the Harold S. Schwenk Sr. Distinguished Chair in Chemistry. He has published over 250 research papers and holds 6 US and international patents on the use of proteins to make holographic associative memories, three-dimensional paged memories, hybrid protein-semiconductor devices and artificial retinal. He has co-chaired advisory boards for the National Institutes of Health and the National Academy of Sciences. He won the Connecticut Medal of Science in 2009 for his work on protein-based devices.
