Mr. Mulvey is the founder and president of biopharmaceutical consulting firm Ealaín Technology Solutions (ETS), which provides project management, process design and finance solutions to the biopharma industry.

Joseph Mulvey

Among Mr. Mulvey’’s many accomplishments since starting ETS is the successful tech transfer of two major biologics for client CSL Behring, including a therapy to prevent major cardiac events and the first FDA-approved cell-culture-based flu vaccine scalable for pandemic response. He is currently leading the integration and start-up of state-of-the-art process automation across pharmaceutical company Merck and the expansion of its Gardasil®9 (HPV 9-valent, recombinant) vaccine franchise.

“Throughout my career, I have witnessed first-hand the advancement of therapies that were inconceivable less than a generation ago. New discoveries in gene editing offer promise to those living with CMT that this disease will be treatable — if not curable — in their lifetime. I look forward to working with the CMT Research Foundation to help make this promise a reality.”

— Mr. Mulvey

Before founding ETS, Mr. Mulvey served as a process engineer and head of critical systems at Centeon, LLC, where he was involved in the design, installation and start-up of automated biopharma process systems and later the head of power, light, heat and water systems.
