Mission Bio Leadership
Prior to Mission Bio, Charlie spent 15 years commercializing next-generation hardware technology and scientific instrumentation at companies including Agilent, Novelx, Glimmerglass Networks, and Princeton Optronics. Charlie was engineering director, product manager, and first employee at Novelx, a Scanning Electron Microscope start-up that was acquired by Agilent in 2009. He holds a B.A. in physics from Columbia University, an M.S. in physics from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and a dual MBA from Berkeley/Haas and Columbia.
Dennis Eastburn, Ph.D.
Dennis has 17 years of experience in life science research and R&D program management. As a senior researcher in the Abate Lab at UCSF, Dennis led development of the core IP that enables Mission Bio’s single-cell approach and secured the early stage funding that launched the company. Dennis holds a B.S. in molecular biology from the University of Texas at Austin and a Ph.D. in molecular, cellular and developmental biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Prior to his stay in the Abate lab, he completed an NIH funded postdoctoral fellowship in cell biology at UCSF.
Adam Sciambi, Ph.D.
Adam leads Mission Bio’s microfluidics design and systems development. His expertise is in microfabrication and scientific instrumentation development. He holds a B.S. in physics from Stanford, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in applied physics from Stanford. He also served as a postdoctoral scholar at UCSF, where his research played a key role in Mission Bio’s microfluidics platform development.
