Applied research manager, BD Biosciences
Dr. Bornheimer is Manager of Applied Research and Scientific Affairs at BD Biosciences, where he works on the development and application of new technologies for single cell research, patient diagnostics, and cell therapy manufacturing. He previously led the R&D effort to develop and commercialize an extremely easy-to-use IVD cytometry system for CD4, %CD4, and Hb measurements for HIV/AIDS patients in resource limited settings (BD FACSPresto). He joined BD to apply science and technology to directly impact patient lives, entering through the Technology Leadership Development Program. Dr. Bornheimer received a PhD from UC San Diego in Chemistry and Biochemistry, under joint mentorship in the departments of Cellular and Molecular Medicine and Bioengineering, where he investigated heterotrimeric G-protein signaling through computational modeling, development of new biosensors, and live cell fluorescent imaging approaches.
