Joe Rosa, Ph.D.

Mr. Joe Rosa and his wife Maggie have lived in Gloucester since 2001, after a successful career in biotech at Boston-based Biogen.  As one of the first employees of the then-start up, Mr. Rosa went on to be the Director of Protein development before retiring in 2005. Mr. Rosa’s experience in biotech, paired with a passion for Cape Ann, was instrumental in the founding of GMGI and helped shape the organization’s vision as we know it today.

Mr. Rosa serves on the Gloucester Board of Health, and volunteers at the Gloucester Biotechnology Academy vocational program as an instructor to students learning entry level lab skills. He, alongside his wife, generously support numerous Cape Ann causes and are dedicated to the area’s youth.
