Jim Lee, the Founder of Synexis, is a West Point graduate and served as an officer in the Army Chemical Corps. As an expert in Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear defense, Jim was recruited and remained at West Point to serve as faculty in West Point’s Chemistry Department, directing the Academy’s largest course. Jim simultaneously obtained a MS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Virginia. After leaving the Army as a Major, Jim served as an anti-terrorism consultant for several Fortune 500 companies, including AIG. While establishing the first sensor networks in New York City’s financial district, Jim determined that, unlike chemical and radiological sensors, no viable technology existed to detect biological agents in real time. Jim sought to fill this capability gap by developing a prophylactic means for reducing biological risks. His goal was to develop a technology that would work safely 24/7/365 in occupied spaces to reduce biological threats from the moment of their introduction, even if their introduction was unnoticed. This is how the Synexis technology known as Dry Hydrogen Peroxide came to be.
