Prior to joining Thermo Fisher Scientific Adam's function was to over see tech transfer of new molecules, manage the automation department, process engineering, manufacturing sciences as well as lead the downstream operations. Goldstein has been a member of the biotech community for over sixteen years. His experience bridges early stage Research and Development as well as large scale late stage development. In this role Goldstein developed new novel chromatographic and downstream capture processes. Several of the processes were cutting edge pushing the vendors’ envelope and challenging new ways to scale Chromatography equipment. During this time Goldstein was the author / inventor for several patents utilizing downstream processing techniques to purify novel proteins. Goldstein has lectured on the professional Chromatography circuit as well as at several colleges on Chromatographic techniques and scale up. More recently Goldstein’s work has involved Clinical operations, up to and including leadership for some of the largest commercial manufacturing facilities in the United States. Currently Goldstein is the Co-Chair person for ISPE community of practice Disposables Users Forum. He also serves on the IBC (BioProcess International Conferences series) as a Scientific Advisor.
