Geert Wenes, Cray Research

Premium

Following an organizational restructuring, the National Center for Genome Resources of Santa Fe, NM, has tapped Geert Wenes for the newly created position of program leader for its bioinformatics department. The department was created along with a computational systems biology department in an effort to better organize NCGR’s scientific and software development efforts, according to an NCGR spokeswoman. No other staffing changes were made due to the reorganization, the spokeswoman said, and NCGR is still looking to fill the position of program leader for the computational systems biology group.

Wenes has held senior management positions at Cray Research, Shell Research, and IBM’s Life Sciences Division, where he was the senior consulting IT architect for the company’s accounts in biotechnology, pharma, and medical devices.
