Howard Spiegel is a reformed bench scientist. He earned his technical skills working under Tony Fauci (when he was a merely a Section Head) making and purifying synthetic peptides. After scoring too low on MCAT and GRE he sold his soul and became a salesman. For the last 30 years Howard has found a way to maintain integrity while serving the research community. Howard joined MesoScale(MSD) in the early days of 2004 and then ProteinSimple (that became Bio-Techne) in 2014. He now takes his work wife (ELLA) on the road and wows scientist with hands-free 90-minute ELISA’s.
