David Soane

Founder and CEO

Soane Energy

David Soane is the scientific founder of several successful high-technology start-ups in the Silicon Valley, including 2C Optics (now Rodenstock NA), ACLARA BioSciences (NASDAQ: ACLA), Alnis BioSciences, Cosmetica, and ZMS.

Formerly the Vice-Chairman of the Department of Chemical Engineering at UC Berkeley, Dr. Soane is also the founder of the pioneering nanotechnology textile company, Nano-Tex, LLC (named best \"Small Tech\" company of 2003 by nanotechnology industry journal Small Times Magazine and featured in TIME Magazine\'s 2002 \"Coolest Inventions of the Year\"). He has over a decade of experience in the commercialization of nanotechnology and advanced polymer chemistry.

David Soane received a B.S. (1973) in chemistry from the National Taiwan University and his Ph.D. (1978) in chemical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. From 1979 to 1994, he was a full-time member of the faculty at the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, where he published approximately 200 technical papers and two books (Polymers in Microelectronics and Polymer Applications for Biotechnology). His academic research spanned a wide range of topics, including rheology and polymer processing, membrane science and technology, polymerization reaction engineering, photolithography and interlayer dielectrics, polymer matrices for electrophoresis, non-linear optics of macromolecules, and novel microstructures/micro-sensors/micro-actuators. Since his departure from Berkeley in 1994, Soane has focused his energy on several high-technology start-ups including Soane Biosciences (now ACLARA Biosciences), Alnis, and recently, Nano-Tex. These ventures share a common theme: applying leading scientific discoveries to mature industries with ready, mass markets.
