Moira Gunn, PhD

Radio Host
Through her public radio program Tech Nation, and its segment BioTech Nation, she has interviewed over 3,000 people – from CEO’s to scientists, from venture capitalists to politicians, from teachers to technophobes, and more. In her words, everyone plays a role, everyone is a piece of the puzzle. A former NASA scientist and engineer, her earlier career focus has been in Big Data ... before it was called Big Data ... and software in global applications, robotics engineering and human nutrition measurement. Gunn further expanded into the world of biotechnology and bioentrepreneurship, interviewing the people who decode our DNA, who seek to cure cancer and rare disease, and who work to make energy fully sustainable. Her book: "Welcome to BioTech Nation: My Unexpected Odyssey into the Land of Small Molecules, Lean Genes, and Big Ideas"was named to the Best Science Books List by the Library Journal.Tech Nation airs nationwide on public radio stations, on the NPR channel on SiriusXM, and the NPR 24-hour Program Stream. It is also aired globally in 144 countries via American Forces Radio Internationale. An award-winning radio journalist, Gunn's success in explaining and framing technology and science is born out of solid credentials.
