Dr. Arthur J. Friedman, Founder, President and CEO
Although his career has been primarily devoted to R&D activities in the fields of pharmaceutical, agricultural and environmental chemistry, Art has been involved in bringing the joy of chemistry to the masses for over 25 years. He created a program, “The Magic of Chemistry”, that was seen by over 30,000 students in four states, and was featured on the nationally syndicated television program “PM Magazine”.
Dr. Friedman can be seen one or two Sundays each month presenting exciting and novel demonstrations and activities to fifth- through eighth-grade boys and girls at Integrated DNA Technology’s sponsored “Super Science Sunday” programs.
Art and his wife Erica, who is an elementary school teacher, reside in suburban Chicago. They have three children: Monica, a writer; Stacy, an artist and teacher; and Brad, a mathematician and biologist. The newest addition to the family is the son of Brad and his wife Irene, Noah Abraham Friedman, who was born in March of 2005, on his grandfather’s birthday.
