Rob Uhlfelder

Senior Vice President, Legal & General Counsel

The many complex laws touched upon by Cepheid’s medical technology—from government regulations to labor law—fall into the capable hands of Robert Uhlfelder, Senior Vice President of Legal and General Counsel.

Robert’s career path began with a bachelor’s in international relations from the College of William and Mary in 1994. After working for a company specializing in international trade show and exhibition shipping, he began law school at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, in 1998. Upon earning his J.D. in 2001, Robert joined WilmerHale in Washington, D.C. as an associate.

At WilmerHale, Robert provided legal services to biotechnology companies, a valuable experience which earned him a position as Assistant General Counsel at BioVeris in 2005 and Wellstat Management Company in 2007. In 2011, he was promoted to General Counsel, where he served for three years, before joining Danaher’s OpCo Dental Consumables (now the independent company KaVo Kerr) as Associate General Counsel.

Finally, in 2017, Robert joined Cepheid as General Counsel, where he has continued to oversee compliance and legal issues.
