Joseph DeSisto


Joseph joined EAC as an Analyst in 2018 and has contributed to several projects in in vitro diagnostics, with a focus on molecular diagnostic platforms and infectious disease testing. He has been especially involved in analyzing the human microbiome, its translational research and commercial landscapes, and the opportunities it may bring to the in vitro diagnostics industry.

Prior to joining EAC, Joseph worked in several fields of biological research. As a fisheries observer, he worked aboard Bering Sea fishing vessels to collect scientific data on marine fisheries. As an entomology technician at UConn, he studied the evolution and systematics of centipedes, moths, and other arthropods. At the University of Maine, he investigated the ecology of E. coli in blueberry fields and the impact of Nosema microsporidian parasites on bee populations.

Joseph earned his BS in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut, and is skilled in primary and secondary research, science communication, and data analysis.
