Dr. Voehringer is driven by the challenge of enabling breakthroughs in science and technology and translating them into successful ventures. As a founding member of ProteinSimple (now a division of Bio-Techne), he was part of a team that built a unique protein analysis business from scratch that was successfully sold for $330M. Over 15 years he made significant contributions to a revolutionary technology that modernized the Western Blot method and grew ProteinSimple from $0 to over $100M in revenue.  Taking on the role(s) of managing the research team, directing the marketing and business development efforts early in the technology rollout and ultimately building and spearheading an international sales teams, David gained a wealth of experience as a small startup successfully transitions to a market force.

David is a creative yet disciplined entrepreneur with a proven track record of success in both industry and academia with over 30 year’s experience and 50 publications.  Through his experiences in premier labs at the world’s top cancer center and one of the top labs at Stanford University he was fortunate to contribute to frontline research and build a network of highly placed individuals in both academia and industry that he collaborates with on a regular basis.

Hosted by David Hirschberg, UWT Research Scientist, the SUPERHEROES OF SCIENCE lecture series is a monthly event of RAIN, an independent 501c3 organization, and takes place at RAIN’s home base “The Wedge.”

In these lectures giants in the sciences expose the work they've done and its importance, fantastic failures and lessons learned, their current work, the future of their field, and war stories from the lab. Open to the public this series brings the local science community together, serves as a platform for networking and cross-pollination within the sciences and in the community, and empowers students with the lessons that they can leverage to be successful in their given career path.
