Lindsie Goss

Senior Technology Manager, Life Sciences

Dennis is thrilled to be at C4C, engaged in the commercialization of a diverse portfolio of life science innovations. He started in academic technology transfer in mid-2007 at UW C4C and spent a 2 year stint at Oregon Health & Science University’s tech transfer office from 2012-2014. Prior to a career in tech transfer, Dennis was a scientist in both academia and the biotech industry, performing research in a wide range of fields: immunology, cell biology, intracellular signal transduction, and extracellular matrix protein biochemistry. The many different titles held during his research career (Research Assistant Professor, Scientist, Research Scientist, Post-doctoral Fellow, Graduate Student, and Research Technologist) inform his view on the scientific enterprise. Dennis’ formal academic degrees are a Bachelors of Science from the University of Washington in Molecular and Cellular Biology, and a PhD from Stanford University in Immunology. Dennis enjoys the field of academic technology transfer due to its exciting combination of science, technology, business, and legal arenas, and the challenge of bringing discoveries out of the laboratory and into the real world.
