As Principal Scientist for Product Development at Global Health Labs (GH Labs), Josh Bishop works to translate our diagnostic research and development efforts into feasible products – bridging our team and external partners as we work together to understand the scalability of critical processes and execute design iterations that align with our vision for product cost, performance, form factor, and impact.
Prior to his role as Principal Scientist, Josh was a Senior Scientist in Diagnostics at GH Labs, where he helped invent and develop diagnostic technologies for primary healthcare in low- and middle-income countries. Before that, he worked at Global Good, an investment fund of Intellectual Ventures, where he helped invent and adapt diagnostic technologies to help solve problems affecting smallholder farmers. Josh began his work in the invention, development, and translation of instrument-free and fully disposable point-of-care diagnostics devices at the University of Washington, where he worked for five years in the Yager Research Lab.
Josh earned his PhD and MS in Electrical Engineering from University of Washington, and his BS in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
