Cellomics Appoints Busa To Head Bioinformatics, Database Development


PITTSBURGH--Cellomics has appointed William Busa, formerly a consulting editor for the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, as vice-president of bioinformatics. In this role, Busa will lead Cellomics' efforts to develop a web-based, hybrid knowledge discovery database of biochemical and molecular interactions that produce normal and abnormal cell functions, the company said.

Lansing Taylor, president and CEO of Cellomics, remarked, "We are fortunate to have attracted someone with expertise in cell physiology and experience in developing bioinformatics tools." He added that Busa would be able to ensure that Cellomics' database is "instrumental in completing a product series designed to produce high content, cell-based data that makes drug discovery more efficient."
