In this episode you’ll hear my interview with Julie Cahillane, Sustainability Associate Director at Northwestern University and Dr. Garry Cooper, adjunct professor at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine and CEO/Co-founder of Rheaply, Inc.

In our conversation you’ll hear how Garry has leveraged his experiences working in research laboratories, to start up a company that is helping institutions better manage their laboratory surplus supplies and under-utilized equipment.

Julie will discuss how Northwestern University is piloting Rheaply’s platform as part of their broader sustainability efforts to reduce waste and increase reuse in labs at Northwestern University.
