Chief Scientific Officer
Martin Latterich, PhD serves as the Chief Scientific Officer of BioScale. Dr. Latterich brings nearly 20 years of academic, commercial and technology development experience to BioScale and features an accomplished research career focused on the proteomics-based discovery of novel biomarkers in oncology, respiratory disease and neurodegenerative disorders. Most recently Martin served as a Professor at the Proteogenomics Research Institute for Systems Medicine in San Diego, where his laboratory used proteomics and genomics to discover novel biomarkers of cancer and degenerative disease though a systems biology approach that includes proteomics. He is also the CSO, co-founder and a board member for the non-profit Nicholas Conor Institute for Pediatric Cancer Research. Martin's work at the institute included designing new technologies to enable the better treatment of children with cancer, using personalized medicine technology to match their unique genetic make-up and tumor physiology to available treatment options. He previously served on the faculty of the University of Montreal, McGill University and the Salk Institute. His grant-funded work has been recognized by the 2003 Tier I Canada Research Chair, the 1998 Pew Scholar Award and the 1997 Basil O'Connor Starter Scholar Award.
Dr. Latterich also held senior management positions at several biotechnology companies, including Diversa and Illumina, where he headed the proteomics initiatives. He has made significant contributions to the field of cell biology, clinical biomarker discovery, proteomics and genomics. Among his recent discoveries are biomarkers for cancer, respiratory disease and neurodegenerative disorders. Dr Latterich has edited one book on RNAi, is author on over 32 publications in leading scientific journals and is listed on numerous patent applications. Martin is Editor-in-Chief of the scientific journal Proteome Science. He has served on several national and international study sections. He was a postdoctoral fellow in molecular and cell biology in the laboratory of Dr. Randy Schekman at the HHMI and University of California, Berkeley.

Vice President, Product Development
Prior to joining BioScale, Dr. Miller was the team leader for development of a MEMS-based tunable Fabry-Perot filter at AXSUN Technologies, a company producing optical subsystems for telecommunications and analytical instrumentation markets. His responsibilities at AXSUN spanned the phases of early prototype development, system qualification, and manufacturing scale-up. Previously, Dr. Miller was a Principal Engineer at Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI), where he worked on diode laser-based gas turbine engine sensors, high-speed propulsion fuel injection and other optical sensors. While at PSI, he initiated several research projects using MEMS technology in applications ranging from airfoil sensor arrays to multispectral imaging filters. Dr. Miller’s doctoral thesis work at Stanford University focused on using imaging techniques to study the effects of compressibility on a turbulent reacting mixing layer.
Dr. Miller earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. He is inventor or co-inventor on 11 issued patents and more than 20 pending patent applications.
