Iseminger joins LA BioMed from the Claremont Graduate University, where, as a member of the Senior Cabinet he held the position of vice president for Advancement, and oversaw Development, Marketing, Communications and Alumni Engagement. He was responsible for planning the University's USD300m Centennial Campaign and growing the board with members who had capacity for 7-figure gifts. Prior to that he led development at Claremont McKenna College, as vice president, Advancement and External Relations and completed a USD635 million capital campaign; the largest in the history of the liberal arts college. Previously he served in a variety of development and external relations roles at The George Washington University, Oberlin College, and at his alma mater Washington State University, where he began his career as the coach and chief fundraiser for men's crew.

David Meyer, PhD, LA BioMed president and CEO said: "Ernie will be integral to LA BioMed's next growth stage. We're fortunate to have such an accomplished individual joining the team and are eager to match his fundraising prowess with the mastery of our research team."
