Some people look at scientists and think of them as narrowly focused on obscure issues, but that is not the case with Dr. Chester Zarnoch. “You’re not just exploring the biology and the chemistry associated with the problem you’re working on, but also thinking about social implications, about economic implications,” he says.

A native of Manhattan, Zarnoch has studied and worked his entire life in New York, from receiving his bachelor’s degree at Southampton College of Long Island University, his master’s in the philosophy of biology at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center, a master’s in biology from Brooklyn College, and his doctorate in biology also from the CUNY Graduate Center. Today he is an associate professor in the Department of Natural Sciences of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College/CUNY.
