John V. Hatton PhD
Dr. Hatton received an Honours Degree in Natural Sciences (Chemistry) at Lincoln College, Oxford, England, in 1958, and subsequently gained his doctorate degree from that University in 1961.
Following a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at the National Research Council in Ottawa, Dr. Hatton began a successful career as a researcher in the pulp and paper industry, first with Domtar Research in Senneville, Quebec, and, latterly, with the Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada in Vancouver. For his pioneering research over 35 years into optimizing the use of a variety of raw materials in pulp and paper manufacture and a better understanding of the pulping processes involved, Dr. Hatton has received much international recognition. He also has experience in biotechnology, having completed several projects on the use of biotechnology to increase tree growth and quality. Dr. Hatton recently terminated his consulting business in order to concentrate on Network Immunology.
