Mickey Pentecost

I’m a biologist, engineer and creative entrepreneur with a passion for art, technology and exploration. I was born and raised in New York City and received a four-year full-tuition academic scholarship to study engineering at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. While earning a Ph.D. from Stanford University School of Medicine I pioneered new research methodologies, made significant discoveries in the mechanisms of microbial infections. As a Postdoctoral Fellow at UCLA, I continued my advanced scientific training and received a highly competitive National Research Service Award. As co-founder and CEO of Diadem Biotherapeutics, Inc., I am applying my broad skill set to revolutionizing how therapeutic biologics are designed, manufactured and delivered.
