Dan Stevens, Eli Zangvil, Dennis Bray

Metabolon, a provider of metabolomics-based biomarker discovery services, has appointed Dan Stevens as marketing director. Stevens previously served as director of life sciences business development for SGI.

Compugen has appointed Eli Zangvil as vice president of business development. Zangvil was most recently COO of UltraShape, a developer of ultrasound-based technology for non-invasive body contouring. Prior to that, he was head of medical services of the Israeli Defense Force's Central Command.

Dennis Bray, a computational cell biologist from the University of Cambridge, has been named the recipient of the Royal Society and Académie des Sciences Microsoft European Science award. The €250,000 ($321,000) award, sponsored by Microsoft Research, is designed “to recognize and reward scientists working in Europe who have made a major contribution to the advancement of science through the use of computational methods,” according to the Royal Society. Bray was selected for the award for his research on computer simulations of bacterial chemotaxis.

Bray said in a statement that he will use the funding to set up a computational facility for the Department of Physiology, Development, and Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge.
