Harold Ray Garner ("Skip Garner") is a biophysicist with distinguished research careers both in plasma physics, in bioengineering and bioinformatics. Dr. Garner was born in St. Louis, Mo. on 5 February 1954.[citation needed] He received his BS in Nuclear Engineering (minor in computer science) at the University of Missouri, Rolla in 1976 and a Ph.D. in plasma/high temperature matter physics from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1982.[1][2] He also holds an honorary professional engineering degree also from the University of Missouri, Rolla.[citation needed]

From 1994 to 2009, Skip held the P. O’B. Montgomery, M.D., Distinguished Chair, and was a Professor of Biochemistry and Internal Medicine, a member of the McDermott Center for Human Growth and Development (Human Genetics Center).[3][non-primary source needed] In December, 2009, Dr. Garner moved to Virginia Tech and became the Executive Director of the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute and a Professor of Biological Science, Computer Science and Medicine. He left that position in March 2012 to lead VBI's Medical Informatics Systems division.[4]

In 2005, Popular Science had an article featuring Garner's holographic video-projection system.[5] It was touted as being the first video-projection system not requiring 3-D glasses featuring a projection surface requiring volume like a column of mist. It is not to be confused with Autostereoscopy.
