About The Lab Man

Meet Steve Hamilton, Ph.D., SLAS Education Director. While he is not a Caped Crusader, he is our resident Renaissance Man, alternatively exploring the outer bounds of Siberia and Patagonia to leading the expedition into the emerging and equally exciting field of laboratory technologies.

In the early 2000s, Hamilton served SLAS as a creative change maker, delivering fresh thinking and energy that has put SLAS on an impressive path to success.

It is with those two attributes, along with Hamilton’s inherent knowledge of the field of laboratory sciences, that SLAS has tapped him as The Lab Man. We know you will enjoy his scientific knowledge, experiential learnings and dry wit.

After years in the drug discovery world, heading many leading-edge automation projects for companies such as Eli Lilly, Scitec and Amgen, Hamilton now has his own consulting firm (Sanitas Consulting, Boulder, CO). He received his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from Purdue University and a B.S. in chemistry from Southeast Missouri State University. Hamilton is the recipient of many prestigious awards that are significant to his role as The Lab Man, including the 1986 Pioneer in Laboratory Robotics Award and others.
