Kirk Meester graduated in 1991 with a bachelor’s in chemistry and earned a master’s in chemistry in 2023. He worked for nearly 30 years in the pharmaceutical field, specifically in quality control, product development, and analytical method development. During this time, he held positions at several labs including Pfizer, Sterling Drug, and Abbot Laboratories. While working for Abbot Laboratories, Mr. Meester assisted in developing the anti-tumor drug Paclitaxel, currently used in the medical field.
Mr. Meester joined the PCC natural sciences department in 2017 and began teaching chemistry classes. His goal for campers is that they see the light of the gospel as they study God’s intricate creation. He wants to instill a love for science and to teach them that true science and a biblical worldview are not in opposition to each other but coexist in perfect agreement.
