Meet Marlon


Congratulations to Marlon Lutz for graduating with his Ph.D. in  Organic and Medicinal Chemistry . Marlon is a Process Development Chemist at Regis and has been part of its family since 2007. 

On April 24th, Marlon successfully defended his dissertation on the “Application of Synthetic Organic and Medicinal Chemistry toward Medical Advances in Cancer, Antibiotics, and Drug Delivery” to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Loyola University Chicago. On May 8th, he officially graduated with distinction the five and a half year program while working full time and being a family man.
Marlon also holds his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemistry from Loyola. Since 2005, he has been studying under his mentor, Dr. Daniel Becker. Their organic chemistry research includes the novel medicines for cancer and bacterial infections, synthesis of cyclobutanones via intramolecular [2+2] cycloadditions, cyclotriveratrylene (CTV) derivatives, and other larger chiral macrocycles.
Marlon started at Regis as an intern and was then immediately hired as a Process Organic Chemist. Over the past 11 years, Marlon has contributed to many projects and focuses on flow chemistry as a tool to improve the safety and efficiency of chemical processes. Furthermore, he has mastered the role of a process chemist which is to identify troubleshoot processes and  develop scalable synthetic routes that are safe, cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and efficient. 
Regis supported his continuing education and is extremely proud of his accomplishments. Marlon would like to graciously thank Regis and the Glunz family for their generous support during his graduate career.
