Trained as an architect and urban designer, Stanley is one of America’s leading planners and designers of science and technology facilities.  Formerly a managing partner at HLW International, he is currently vice president and national director of life sciences at one of the country’s best  science and technology practice groups.

Stanley has had a pivotal role in the design of major projects for clients such as the FDA, Merck, Schering-Plough, and the Columbia University Medical Center. He often participates on panels and in study groups for major industry organizations such as the New York Academy of Sciences, the National Science Foundation, Tradeline, and the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE).  Stanley’s main topic is how the demands and needs of science intersect with science and technology facilities.

His ability to maintain contact with the broader issues of the profession has been enhanced by continuing engagement with the AIA, particularly AIA NY’s Oculus.

    What a great job you’re doing with Sound Advice. You are such a leader in the industry anyway, but this is truly one of the most helpful and creative practices going on today. The quality of speakers is good, your facilitation is awesome, the length of the program is effective, and, well, it’s just extremely well done.

    Looking forward to many more great speakers and topics.
