Joseph has held numerous senior positions at protein-focused companies driving strategies to maximize industry impact and profitability. Prior roles include SVP of Global Sales and Marketing at Diagenode (acquired by Hologic), a life sciences company providing tools for molecular epigenetics research and infectious disease diagnostics, and Director of Sales at Abcam, a company specializing in the production and distribution of research antibodies. Joseph has a MSc in Pharmaceutical Medicine from Hibernia College, Ireland, and a BSc in Chemical Engineering from Michigan State University.

Joseph Bertelsen, Chief Commercial Officer: “Nuclera is disrupting the protein market with their technology allowing researchers to more easily and quickly have access to proteins for their research. Their benchtop technology has the potential to greatly reduce costs and timelines associated with the drug discovery process. I’m excited to be joining the team at such an exciting phase of the journey to drive adoption of Nuclera’s eProtein Discovery.”

Dr Michael Chen, CEO and co-founder, Nuclera, said: “Appointing our first Chief Commercial Officer marks an exciting step in Nuclera’s journey.
