Nuclera, a BioTech firm located in Cambridge, has appointed Dr Jonathan Milner as its new non-executive chairman. The company’s eProtein Discovery benchtop system enables rapid protein prototyping, which helps pharmaceutical companies to rapidly produce high-quality, soluble, and active proteins.
The technology aims to accelerate improvements in human health. Nuclera has a team of over 100 employees, including software engineers, engineers, and scientists, in Boston, Massachusetts.

He is a titan in the life sciences industry, and we are delighted to have him on board as we grow from strength to strength.” Dr Milner said, “I am delighted to join the Nuclera team as they bring the eProtein Discovery to the market.”
