Garrett Schumacher oversees TCP's strategic vision throughout its recent rebranding and updating, and he leads their marketing and recruiting efforts. Mr. Schumacher also lectures for the Intro to Cybersecurity course. While TCP searches for an academic advisor, please feel free to reach out to him regarding admissions questions or general inquiries about the TCP program or his research.
Mr. Schumacher works at the cutting edge of genetics and information security, developing molecular encryption with GeneInfoSec, a Boulder-based public-benefit biotech startup. His hope is to increase privacy, security, and awareness in healthcare and academia in the aforementioned domains.
Mr. Schumacher received his BA and MS degrees in Integrative Physiology from the University of Colorado Boulder while studying the genetics of toxicities associated with cryopreservation and oxidative stress at the Institute for Behavioral Genetics. It was there that he met his business partners and the lack of information security around the world's most valuable and private information, genetic data, was first recognized. Since his graduate research, he received his cybersecurity education from the University of Denver prior to joining the TCP team. Outside of genetics and information security, Garrett's interests include climbing, endurance running, and hiking. Go Buffs!
