Brian Grella, Ph.D.
High Point, NC

I have a B.S. degree in chemistry from Old Dominion University and a Ph.D. in medicinal chemistry from Virginia Commonwealth University. For those that are unsure what medicinal chemistry is, it's the the study of 'drug design' and it encompasses synthetic organic chemistry, biochemistry and pharmacology (for a list of my publications). My background in medicinal chemistry includes working on developing potential Alzheimer's and oncology treatments as well as studying hallucinogenic agents to name a few.

My woodworking journey began back in 2002 when my wife wanted me to install a few pieces of molding in the house we were living in at the time. I naively bought an inexpensive contractor-style table saw for the job when a miter saw would have been adequate. Afterward, my woodworking interest and tool collection started to snowball.

Aside from woodworking, I also enjoy astronomy. I put together a few of my astrophotography photos that you can check out here: astronomy page.
