As Senior Director of Research and Development at Life Technologies, Peter Vander Horn manages Sequencing Biochemistry for the Ion Torrent, Semiconductor Sequencing program.

Immediately prior to joining LIFE, Dr. Vander Horn was Chief Operating Officer at Protein Simple, Inc., where he brought an interesting proteomics technology to market.

He spent most of his career developing DNA sequencing and analysis technologies, first at Amersham Life Sciences (GE Healthcare) and later as V.P. of Research, Development, and Engineering at MJ Research, Inc. (Bio-Rad). If you sequence DNA or perform PCR you have probably used a product Dr. Vander Horn helped develop.
