Jerry LR Chandler received his Ph. D. in Biochemistry. After three years of post-doctoral study in Genetics in Freiburg, Germany, he joined the US Public Health Service. He contributed to public health research in pharmacology, toxicology, genetics, epidemiology, occupational health policy and scientific computer systems design. In 1996, he joined the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study of George Mason University. He served for three years on the National Academy of Sciences Committee for the Destruction of Chemical Weapons. In 2001, he became a Visiting Professor at the International Institute for Advanced Studies (IIAS) in Baden-Baden, Germany. The US Public Health Service, the IIAS and the CASYS organization of Liege, Belgium awarded special recognitions to his scientific accomplishments. He serves on the editorial board of the Italian journal, Metalogicon, He was co-founder of the Washington Evolutionary Systems Society in 1983 and continues to serve WESS in a leadership role. He serves as a member of the Board of the Foundation for Information Sciences. For the past ten years, a focus of his research was the ontological conceptualization of relationships among the disciplines.
