BIOSKETCH
Mr. Bixby has been advancing biotechnology to benefit the public health across applications spanning environment, food tech, diagnostics, therapeutics, biodefense, bioremediation, and invasive species control interventions, globally for over 20 years.

His experience as a life sciences, biotechnology and public health professional has focused on development of advanced technologies with applications applicable to human and animal health, food, and environmental interventions, as well as, national security, conservation, sustainable agriculture, waste-to-value, biofuels, and consumer products.

He has cross-functional experience developing, deploying and evaluating technologies for clinical, public health, and biodefense programs including biological threat detection systems and various therapeutic and vaccine medical countermeasures. Additionally, his technical and commercial experience with international launching of advanced technologies has been informed by having helped develop multiple infectious disease diagnostics including molecular tests for the safety of the U.S. blood supply and other nations, which also greatly enhanced later efforts to evaluate and deploy critical diagnostic interventions in low resource settings across developing countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

His world view has been further formed through graduate research in epidemiology with strong focus in governmental and regulatory policies affecting environmental and public health, biotechnology, synthetic biology and genetic engineering. Mr. Bixby has multi-disciplinary expertise in M&A technology analysis, basic and applied research, new product development, project management, marketing, business development, strategic alliances, and leading teams.

Mr. Bixby is also a great proponent of interventions aimed at Public Health and One Health, Planetary Health.

ONE HEALTH, PLANETARY HEALTH.

ONE HEALTH focuses on the interconnectedness of the health and well-being of humans, animals and ecosystems. Our health depends on healthy connections between those ecosystems.

PLANETARY HEALTH reframes the ENVIRONMENTAL and GLOBAL HEALTH challenges in terms that help make them self-evident.

ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH and PUBLIC HEALTH are ultimately measures of the PLANET'S GENETICS, which is to say ALL THE GENES, interacting with each other and their environments under the pressure of time.
