Mr. Nesbitt completed his Masters degree in Molecular Biology at Simon Fraser University where his work focused on the discovery of new genes in the C. elegans model organism. This experience impressed upon him both the value of next generation sequencing and its vulnerabilities to the extensively manual sample preparation steps. Mr. Nesbitt started his professional career in liquid handling automation as a product manager responsible for the development of NGS library construction solutions. He now works with Coastal Genomics to launch its automated gel size electrophoresis solution, Ranger Technology.
