Cellomics Appoints Science Staff, Advisors


PITTSBURGH--Cellomics, a privately held developer of bioinformatics software, fluorescence reagents, and assays and a cell-based high-content screening system, announced appointments to staff and its advisory panel recently. Milan Mrksich, assistant professor of chemistry at the University of Chicago, will join Cellomics' scientific advisory board.

Chris Harrington, formerly project leader for Citibank, DeSai Systems, and Dataviews, will lead the development of the Cellomics database. Lawrence Zana, formerly of RedZone Robotics and Westinghouse Electric's Science and Technology Center, will manage the Cellomics software team that is developing the high content screening assays. Keith Boyce, most recently of Legent, where he was responsible for the creation of several LAN performance management products, was hired to manage database development for Cellomics. And Elizabeth Woo joined Cellomics as project manager in business development from the University of Pittsburgh. She will foster specific relationships in the development of novel fluorescence-based reagents.
