People in the News: MIT Dean Joins Bruker Board and More


Bruker said this week that Mark Kastner, dean of the School of Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has been elected to a seat on its board of directors. He is replacing Charles Wagner, who left the board last year to become Bruker's chief financial officer.

Kastner has been a physics professor at MIT since 1973, and he has served as director of the MIT Center for Materials Science and Engineering and as head of the MIT Department of Physics.

CombiMatrix said this week that chief commercial officer Mark McDonough will take over as CEO effective March 15, replacing Judd Jessup, who is retiring.

McDonough joined CombiMatrix in August 2012 from Pathwork Diagnostics, where he was vice president of sales, customer service, and training. He also has worked for US Labs, Dianon, Laboratory Corporation of America, EMC, and Ventana Medical Systems.
