Randy Wagner is an experienced business executive, and classically trained scientist, having served almost 30 years in life sciences research and development. He began his academic career studying the effects of novel human biological response modifiers (i.e. interferons, interleukins, and monoclonal antibodies) at the University of Wisconsin’s, NCI designated, Comprehensive Cancer Center. That preclinical experience and the successes around developing and directing core support operations, advanced his technical understandings and compelled him to move forward and start his first biotechnology company, ProtoPROBE, Incorporated.
Randy served as the founder and CEO of ProtoPROBE, Inc. for 10 years. During those years he served the custom bio-tool and diagnostic assay development needs of some of the most prominent biotechnology and academic research institutions. His work has been sited in prestigious scientific journals and company trade publications. He has proven technical expertise and proficiencies in many areas of cellular immunology and molecular biology research and development, and all aspects of bio-assay development, from concept through finished assay.
Some of his more noteworthy scientific accomplishments include the development of patented monoclonal antibody based quantitative assays, that measure proteins in complex mixtures in both their native and denatured forms, and assays that specifically characterize novel conformational events (i.e. vitamin and small molecule interactions with their binding domains, protein to protein, and protein to receptor complexes).
Over his 30 year career in biomedical research and biotechnology Randy has served as a research scientist, Director of Core Research Facilities, Director of Product Development, Biotechnology Technical Consultant, Immunodiagnostic Assay Development, Manager of Quality Assurance
