I have more than 10 years of technical and leadership accomplishments in the field of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and IT with significant experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry and in service oriented as well as research related academic environments. As a member of the scientific leadership and management team at ActivX Biosciences, Inc. I am the principal liaison between drug development teams and Research Informatics/IT efforts. Over the last few years, my group has implemented several published and proprietary algorithms in support of ActivX's proteomics platform and drug discovery efforts. I have personally contributed directly to early discovery projects in several metabolic and inflammatory disease areas by providing structural bioinformatics and molecular modeling support. As a member of the senior scientific staff, my role has entailed the development and implementation of ActivX’s business strategies on a high level.
