The Buffalo News reported last week that the State University of New York at Buffalo has tapped Bruce Holm to serve as executive director of its Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics, which has been expanded to include seven new life science units — molecular targeting; gene expression; proteomics and structural biology; disease modeling; pharmacokinetics; a clinical research center; and an interventional population health observatory. The UB center also expanded its faculty from six to nearly 50 scientists, including researchers from the nearby Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute. Jeffrey Skolnick will continue to serve as director of the bioinformatics research group at the center, and will report to Holm, according to the report.
