Prior to founding Lincoln Diagnostics, Gary was President and CEO of Lincoln Laboratories, until it was purchased by Institut Mérieux of France. His collaboration with Institut Mérieux, developing novel patented products for Smallpox vaccination, Tuberculin skin testing and testing for cell-mediated immunity, provided a solid foundation for Lincoln Diagnostics' entry into the field of allergy.
