Contact John Tillotson, Ph.D.

John Tillotson, Ph.D, received his Doctorate in Physical Organic Chemistry and his Bachelor’s in Chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Under Professor Joseph W. Perry, Ph.D., his doctoral research focused on investigating the structure-property relationships of organic chromophores with hypersensitivity to electric fields for use in second harmonic generation (SHG) sensing and imaging of neuronal interactions. Through his efforts and in conjunction with Dr. Joel Hales, Tillotson developed a novel screening method for SHG sensitivity to electric fields based on neuronal membrane mimics. He joined Southern Research in 2019 and is currently working on novel countermeasures for skin exposure to chemical vesicants and TGF-β activation for the treatment of multiple myeloma under the direction of Dr. Bini Matthew.
