Ceiba Solutions, a software development and IT services company headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., has hired eight former employees of Rosetta Biosoftware to help expand its bioinformatics team (see related story, this issue).
The new hires include Tim Bonnert, former director of applied science at Rosetta; Scott DePriest, formerly senior director of global sales; Rich Estrin, former senior software development manager, and five other employees who Ceiba did not name.
Ceiba has also added Susan Ward, a former senior executive of Wyeth (now Pfizer), and Sterling Winthrop (now Sanofi-Aventis), as an executive advisor.
Simulations Plus has appointed Robert Clark to the position of director of life sciences. He replaces John Crison, who resigned in late October.
Clark was previously vice president of science and research at Tripos. He holds a PhD from Cornell University in biochemistry, statistics, and biometry.
