Trisha is a trained biologist with over 10 years of experience in biotechnology instrumentation development and laboratory management. For much of her career, Trisha has managed operations within multidisciplinary R&D laboratories and cell culture core facilities. In these roles, she has designed and implemented business processes to achieve operational excellence and scale organizations safely and efficiently. Trisha has also made significant contributions to the design and development of many products that biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies rely upon daily. These products include high precision and high throughput electrophysiology, cellular imaging, and label-free biosensors systems for the study of complex cell signaling pathways. Trisha earned her Bachelor of Science in biology with a minor in chemistry at California State University, East Bay.
