Senior Scientist, Cell Culture Development, R&D at AbbVie Research Center


Jonah is a Senior Scientist in the Manufacturing Sciences, Cell Culture group at AbbVie Bioresearch Center in Worcester, MA. In this role, his work involves supporting the manufacture of commercial and late-stage clinical biologics via laboratory experiments, on-floor manufacturing support, and quality risk management activities.

Jonah received his B.S. in bioengineering (biopharmaceutical track) from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA, and completed his doctorate in biomedical engineering at Boston University under the mentorship of Professor Mark Grinstaff. Jonah's doctoral studies were focused on materials' science approaches to oncology drug delivery technologies, such as sustained release and stimuli-responsive release of therapeutics.

After obtaining his Ph.D, Jonah joined AbbVie in 2015. It has so far been a fantastic career experience helping to assure the quality and supply of biologics, and to advance candidate therapies towards commercialization!
