    Dr. Harold H. Trimm was born in 1955 in Brooklyn, New York. Dr. Trimm is the chairman of the Chemistry Department at Broome Community College in Binghamton, New York. In addition, he is an Adjunct Analytical Professor, Binghamton University, State University of New York, Binghamton, New York.

    He received his PhD in chemistry, with a minor in biology, from Clarkson University in 1981 for his work on fast reaction kinetics of biologically important molecules. He then went on to Brunel University in England for a postdoctoral research fellowship in biophysics, where he studied the molecules involved with arthritis by electroptics. He recently authored a textbook on forensic science titled Forensics the Easy Way (2005).

    William Hunter III lives in Houghton, New York. He holds a master's degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a specific focus in ecology and evolution. He has done extensive research in the fields of limnology and the effect of water quality on aquatic life, and he is in the midst of project funded by the National Science Foundation researching the effects of a new sewer project on the water chemistry and aquatic life of Cuba Lake. A longtime science-lover, he has worked for Ward s Natural Science Inc., to create new biology, chemistry, and environmental science products to serve the science education community. He currently shares his interest in biology and chemistry with his New York state students to help build another generation of scientists
