  • Principles of Biotechnology I/II and POB III/IV

Mr. George Cachianes

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I moved to San Francisco in 1984 to work for the biotech industry, and I still haven't lost the Brooklyn accent. I did research for 15 years in molecular biology, but I was lucky to find a greater and more rewarding challenge in teaching. My goal is to prepare and motivate students to pursue a career in science. There are over 850 biotech companies in commuting distance to San Francisco. In my personal time, I love travel and the outdoors. I am a class V white water raft guide, an avid backpacker, and I love exploring the ruins of ancient cultures. I am also a big fan of the Arts, and subscribe to the symphony, theater, and musical events.
