Third Board appointment of 2021 supports long-term vision for the company’s technology platform
908 Devices (NASDAQ: MASS), a pioneer of purpose-built, handheld and desktop mass spectrometry devices for chemical and biomolecular analysis, has appointed Marcia Eisenberg, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of Labcorp Diagnostics, to serve on its Board of Directors effective immediately.
Dr. Eisenberg has extensive experience with forensic DNA testing, biotechnology, molecular genetics and molecular oncology. She has helped lead the development and validation of well over a thousand clinical assays used for patient care during her more than 30-year tenure at Labcorp (NYSE: LH), a global life sciences company. Dr. Eisenberg previously held roles on the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the FBI’s National DNA Advisory Board, where she was later recognized for her contributions to the advancement of DNA technology. Earlier this year, Dr. Eisenberg was recognized by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) as a 2021 Luminary.
“I have had the opportunity to know and work with Marcia for well over a decade, and I have always been impressed with her ability to transform science into viable diagnostic assays,” said Kevin Hrusovsky, chairman of 908 Devices. “Marcia has a proven track record and a broad range of experience from diagnostics, to drug development and to forensics. Her unique perspective will be an important addition to our Board. I look forward to collaborating with Marcia as we support 908 Devices in executing on its vision to democratize mass spectrometry.”
Dr. Eisenberg’s appointment comes on the heels of two additions to the Board earlier this year: Jeff George and Fenel Eloi.
“908 Devices is guided by an amazing group of Board members with talents spanning technology and applications, finance and operations, and we are fortunate to have such a wealth of experience to draw upon,” said Kevin J. Knopp, CEO and co-founder of 908 Devices. “Marcia’s appointment supports our efforts of today, but also our long-term, visionary platform aspirations in proteomics and diagnostics. I am very excited that she has joined us on our journey.”
