Reinhard Schneider, David Fenyo, Gregory Kinch


Reinhard Schneider stepped down as CIO of Lion Bioscience last week “to pursue new challenges,” according to the company. Schneider is a founding member of the company. Prior to joining Lion, he held a position as a scientist at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany. He will continue to act as a consultant to Lion, which “has reached a size that allows me to pursue new challenges in a more scientific environment,” Schneider said in a statement.

David Fenyo, founder and president of protein informatics firm ProteoMetrics, has joined Amersham Biosciences as a staff scientist. Fenyo most recently served as director of proteomics for Genomic Solutions after it acquired ProteoMetrics in Feb. 2002.

Silicon Genetics has appointed another Genomic Solutions alum, Gregory Kinch, to the position of vice president of sales and services. Kinch served as executive vice president of sales and marketing at Genomic Solutions, where he was responsible for acquiring, developing, and selling microarray and proteomics technologies.
