The HaloSource story began in 1998, when Dr. Williams assembled a strategic alliance of scientists and industry experts to make water better. He and the team have since built a world-class team of some of the most preeminent chemists, biochemists and microbiologists in the world, all working every day to make our world a better place through water, the most essential element for human life.

Prior to founding HaloSource, Dr. Williams was a professor of microbiology at Michigan State University for 26 years. He is an experienced consultant to the research units of major pharmaceutical companies, including Merck and Pharmacia & Upjohn.
