Lafayette Hill, PA (Vocus) January 20, 2010 -- Integrated Project Services (IPS), a leading, full-service engineering, construction, commissioning and qualification company dedicated to assisting life science companies execute technically complex projects, today announced the appointment of Dave Wareheim as Bioprocess Subject Matter Expert. In this role, Mr. Wareheim will leverage his extensive industry insight and knowledge of operations, simulation and throughput analysis, process development, process engineering, process architecture and overall process consultancy.
"Dave brings an in-depth knowledge of cell culture processes and the design/implementation of Single-Use (SU) technologies; this knowledge will significantly improve operational capabilities, throughput and process control for our pre-clinical, clinical and commercial manufacturing customers,” said Dave Goswami, P.E., President and Chief Operating Officer, IPS. “His combined experience in large biotech projects and SU systems is unmatched in the architectural/ engineering (A/E) side of the business. Dave joining the IPS team really balances our existing strengths in process architecture, equipment and execution of process projects with knowledge of cell culture science and operations, enhancing IPS’ position as a top tier provider of bioprocess engineering services.”
Mr. Wareheim brings over thirty years of experience as a bioprocess subject matter expert for global small and large scale Research & Development (R&D) and commercial manufacturing projects. For the last 8 years, he was with Centocor-Ortho Biotech as Master Engineering Fellow and was responsible for the process implementation of SU biotechnologies in both upstream and downstream operations. He led an effort to streamline downstream processing that ultimately led to patent submission and design/build of a first ever system. Previously, Mr. Wareheim worked as a Senior Process Engineering Specialist where he provided process consulting on the design, implementation and qualification of bioreactors, automated UF/DF, and other biotechnology operations. At SmithKline Beecham, Mr. Wareheim was a Computer Process Systems Manager responsible for the design, implementation and qualification of bioreactors, equipment and downstream units. He began his career as a Staff Scientist with the Frederick Cancer Research Center (FCRC) where he designed and executed bench scale isolation of anti-tumor anti-neoplastics.
Mr. Wareheim earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Towson State University. Considered an expert in disposable technology and fermentation, he has presented at numerous meetings and conferences and has written numerous technical manuscripts and book chapters.
