David Weston, PhD joins ESB-USA as Tissue Bank Supervisor

European Sperm Bank-USA is pleased to announce our recent hire of David Weston, Ph.D. as our new Tissue Bank Supervisor. David started his career at Texas A&M University studying the immunology and molecular biology of host-parasite interactions and infectious disease research. He worked from 2000 to 2010 at a start-up biotechnology company focusing on novel technology for drug discovery in cancer, inflammation and metabolic disease intervention. David brings with him vast experience with sterile tissue- and cell-culture techniques and a diverse background of science skills to Seattle Sperm Bank. We are excited to have him join our team and enhance the quality assurance and cryobanking technology here at Seattle Sperm Bank, and to maintain our world class laboratory standards.

David Weston says that “I’ve always been interested in improving people’s quality of life through science. Working here at Seattle Sperm Bank gives me that opportunity to help couples experience the joy of children in way I’ve never experienced before.” On his move from drug discovery/basic science to clinical science at Seattle Sperm Bank, “I found a win-win opportunity here at Seattle Sperm Bank by being able to use my science background to improve and maintain a high quality laboratory while being able to directly help others at the same time. Also, I found the personnel here at Seattle Sperm Bank to be highly motivated and dedicated toward this same pursuit, their enthusiasm was infectious.”
