Biography

Mark is an accomplished biomedical research scientist and physician who has earned four collegiate degrees including two doctorates from Virginia Tech in Veterinary Medicine and Biochemistry with numerous peer-reviewed publications to his credit. Working as a Sales Executive with a major Fortune 500 company, he consults on nanotechnology needs for biological and material scientists employed with academic/pharma/government research labs including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), Department of Defense (U.S. Army, Navy & Air Force), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF), Food & Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA), Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and the Smithsonian Institution to name a few. He is a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics, the University of Maryland NanoCenter, the Maryland Aviation Museum and the World Veterinary Association. After joining the Civil Air Patrol (U.S. Air Force auxiliary) in 1975, he quickly rose thru the ranks, received his Solo wings in 1977, was chosen for IACE in 1978, earned the Model Rocketry badge in 1979, awarded a CAP college scholarship in 1980 and capped his CAP cadet career with the achievement of the General Carl A. Spaatz Award in 1981 for which he received a congratulatory letter from former president Richard M. Nixon and a personal meeting with Paul E. Garber (First Curator of the National Air & Space Museum). He currently holds the grade of Captain in the Glenn L. Martin Composite Squadron where he serves as the unit’s Aerospace Education Officer and Medical Officer in addition to being a commercial instrument rated CAP pilot. http://independent.academia.edu/MarkAKukuckaDVMPhD
