Adam Buchaklian PhD earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Bacteriology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. His PhD thesis work was completed at the Medical College of Wisconsin studying the protein structure and function of a potential antibiotic resistance transporter from E. coli in the Department of Biophysics. After completing his thesis work he went on to study new potential antimicrobial methods including metal compounds and antimicrobial peptides. He also worked on genetic defects involved in mitochondrial dysfunction developing a potential new laboratory test to identify and diagnose mitochondrial defects in muscle cells. Dr. Buchaklian is currently the Director of Research and Information at Surfacide LLC, a next generation whole room automated UV-C disinfection system developer and manufacturer. Since joining Surfacide he has focused on expanding the knowledge base surrounding UV-C through publications and developing new tests to challenge the effectiveness of UV-C disinfection. He also works with healthcare facilities to identify challenges and document the efficacy of the Surfacide UV-C disinfection system. His ultimate goal is to spread the scientific evidence and current knowledge of infection prevention and the role of UV-C.
