Scott Livingston — Managing Director of Axiom Capital Management Inc. (Axiom) and head of the Livingston Group, an investment and corporate advisory group within Axiom focused on nanotechnology — has recently joined the Corporate Advisory Board (CAB) of the Dolan DNA Learning Center, an operating arm of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. As a member of the CAB, Livingston will lend his significant expertise in financial management to the DNALC’s operations, helping to raise awareness and funding for the educational programs of the world-renowned museum and educational facility.
Touted by the Forbes Wolfe Nanotechnology Report as “sharp and highly connected,” Livingston has spoken about leading nanotechnology trends at the Harvard Club, the Cambridge Healthtech Institute, and Business Executives for National Security. He has worked on Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s “Jobs for New York” Forum and has presented to several state pension leaders across the nation. A former Senior Vice President for Investment Management at Lehman Brothers, Livingston is a board member of the NanoBusiness Alliance and a founding board member of the NY Nanobusiness Alliance.
“ We are thrilled to have Scott Livingston working with us at the Dolan DNA Learning Center,” said Karen Orzel, Development Officer at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. “His expertise and strategic advice will help us to raise funds to support the hands-on DNA education for which the Learning Center is known.”
The Dolan DNA Learning Center is the world’s first science center devoted entirely to public genetics education. The DNALC provides students in 5th through 12th grades with extensive hands-on laboratory experience and offers them opportunity to perform key techniques used by genetic engineers. As the single largest provider of biotechnology laboratory instruction at the pre-college level in the United States, the DNALC has enriched the lives of approximately 300,000 students and teachers from Long Island and around the country since it opened in 1988. The CAB acts as a liaison between the DNALC and the corporate community. Edward A. Chernoff (Motors & Armatures) serves as Chairman of the CAB while Arthur M. Spiro acts as the CSHL Trustee Liaison.
