NetGenics founder and former CEO Manuel Glynias has left Lion Biosciences, where he was serving as senior vice president for strategic planning following Lion’s acquisition of Netgenics in January.

A Lion spokesperson said Glynias’ departure was a “friendly and mutual decision.”


Bill Blake, formerly vice president of high performance technical computing at Compaq (now Hewlett-Packard), will be leaving the company at the end of June. He will join Framingham, Mass.-based database and data-mining startup Netezza as senior vice president of product development. “One of my goals is to help them bring their products to the bioinformatics marketplace,” said Blake of his new employer.
