Greg Lennon Joins Gene Logic as V-P of Genomics

Premium

COLUMBIA, Md.--Gene Logic, a drug discovery company here that relies on proprietary bioinformatics software, has named Greg Lennon as vice-president of genomics. Lennon was formerly a senior scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and manager of the functional genomics research portfolio for the Joint Genome Institute of the US Department of Energy (DOE).

He previously collaborated with Keith Elliston--now Gene Logic's senior vice-president and chief scientific officer--to implement the Merck Gene Index project, which coordinated the efforts of Merck, the Livermore Lab, Washington University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the National Center for Biotechnology Information in a major gene sequencing effort. In addition to his new position, Lennon will continue to direct the DOE-funded Integrated Molecular Analysis of Genome Expression Consortium, which supports such initiatives as the Cancer Genome Anatomy Project and the HHMI-Washington University Mouse EST project.
