Speaker Bio
Eric Hobbs leads Berkeley Lights, an East Bay company developing nanofluidic technology that enables cell selection for drug discovery, cell line development, and cell therapy manufacturing. The SF Business Times recently profiled Hobbs as a "destroyer of obstacles." Under his leadership, Berkeley Lights has hit revenue and budget targets, despite having lost 40 staff just before Hobbs took the helm. How does he face and overcome such challenges, and what has his professional journey been like? Join us November 16 to hear for yourself.
