Gary S. Goldman holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Pacific Western University in Los Angeles and graduated with honors in 1977 from California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) with a double major: B.S. Engineering (Electronic emphasis) and B.S. Computer Science. His biography is included in Marquis’ 8th Edition 2005-2006 Who’s Who in Science and Engineering and 23rd Edition (2006) of Who’s Who in the World.
In 1980, as vice-president of Systems Development of Cascade Graphics Development, he developed the first microcomputer-based computer-aided drafting (CAD) system (prior to the well known AutoCAD product). This system used an Apple II to process user inputs and a 68000 microprocessor to perform real time graphics. Dr. Gilbert McCann, then professor emeritus of CalTech, served on the board of directors of this company. Goldman engaged in computer consulting tours to South Africa, Germany, Holland, England and Canada.
Gary S. Goldman, Ph.D., serves as a reviewer for the following peer-reviewed journals listed with the National Library of Medicine:
- Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)
- The American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC)
- Expert Review of Vaccines (ERV)
- Expert Review of Dermatology (ERD)
- Epidemiology and Infection, and British Medical Journal (BMJ)
- Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (JEADV)
He serves on the Editorial Board of Research and Reviews in Bioscience. Articles discussing Dr. Goldman's research have been published in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (J AAPS), Pediatrics, The International Journal of Toxicology (IJT), Vaccine, and Human and Experimental Toxicology (HET).
From April, 2004 to April, 2010 Goldman served as Editor-in-Chief of the peer-reviewed journal, Medical Veritas: The Journal of Medical Truth (see www.MedicalVeritas.com).
Dr. Goldman served for eight years (from January, 1995 until his resignation in October of 2002) as Research Analyst for the Varicella Active Surveillance Project in Antelope Valley, in a cooperative project with the The Los Angeles County Department of Health (LACDH, Acute Communicable Disease Control unit), funded by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, Atlanta, GA).
Presently, Dr. Goldman serves as a consulting computer scientist and is on the board of directors of Pearblossom Private School, Inc. which provides distance education to over 5,000 independent study students each year in grades K through 12 throughout the United States (see www.PearblossomSchool.com)
Dr. Goldman also:
- Was elected member of the Phi-Kappa-Phi honor society, received the Outstanding University Engineering Student Award, special Merit Award in recognition of scholarly commitment and outstanding Academic Achievement in Computer Science at CSUF.
- Served as assistant professor at CSUF to the Engineering and Quantitative Methods departments instructing both graduate and undergraduate courses in statistics, programming, digital simulation, and digital logic design and switching theory.
- Received special Merit Award in recognition of an attitude of enthusiasm and for outstanding service to the Division of Engineering at CSUF presented by Engineering Chairman Dr. Eugene Hunt.
- Served as a computer consultant responsible for the automation of a wide variety of businesses, improved production, and conversion of databases. He has authored and presented numerous manuscripts contributing to engineering and computer science disciplines and enjoys writing heuristic programs.
- Co-developed the Goldman/Blake remediation program for children at Hope-Haven Hospital in Florida, in an experimental program to correct specific visual process deficits.
- Holds a U.S. patent (#4223255, granted September, 1980) for a micro-programmed, high-efficiency motor-in-a-wheel called “Power Wheel,” This invention was featured on the front cover of the Fall, 1980 issue of Science and Mechanics
- In recent years, authored/co-authored numerous technical manuscripts concerning varicella/herpes zoster epidemiology and capture-recapture techniques.
