PROVIDENCE RI (October 19, 2022) Nabsys, the pioneer in electronic whole-genome mapping, announced that Justin Bingham has joined the company as its Chief Commercial Officer.
“Justin brings highly relevant experience to Nabsys, both as a consumer of whole-genome technology and data and as a builder of commercial life sciences organizations,” said Barrett Bready, MD, Nabsys Founder and CEO. “Retaining his leadership as our Chief Commercial Officer is a critical next step as we position electronic whole-genome mapping to address challenges in human health.”
Prior to Nabsys, Justin served on the executive leadership team at CENTOGENE, GmbH as the Senior Vice President of Business Development. “It was during my tenure at CENTOGENE where I was exposed to the huge unmet need for higher resolution whole-genome mapping to better inform and improve clinical diagnostics,” said Bingham. “Current technologies struggle to cost effectively analyze the genome for structural variation. I believe Nabsys is bringing forward technology that will dramatically improve our understanding of structural variants and provide new insights into the underlying causes of disease.”
Justin also has experience launching instruments into the genomics space. He played a pivotal role in the commercialization of the world’s first benchtop DNA assembly instrument, the BioXp system, while at SGI-DNA, Inc. where he was responsible for business development, global sales and marketing. “Nabsys will rely on Justin’s understanding of how to efficiently build and scale a strong commercial organization that meets the needs of the company and our path to growth,” said Kevin DeGeeter, CFO, Nabsys.
The Nabsys mission is to advance the understanding of disease, increase diagnostic yield, and improve patient outcomes by enabling routine, accurate, cost-effective analysis of genomic structural variation (SV). In the past decade, scientists have determined that SVs account for the majority of human genomic variation. However, SV research has been limited due to relatively high cost, high computational burden, and inadequate performance of current tools. By employing electronic detection, Nabsys’ whole-genome mapping solution, HD-Mapping™, can offer cost-effective hardware and consumables while delivering high-resolution single-molecule measurements. Located in Providence, RI, Nabsys employs a growing interdisciplinary group of dedicated scientists, engineers, and other professionals committed to the advancement of genomic analysis.
