Ruedi Aebersold, Michael Colvin


Institute for Systems Biology co-founder Ruedi Aebersold has accepted a position with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) to create an interdisciplinary “faculty cluster” focused on systems biology. Aebersold will remain at ISB full-time for the next 18 months, and will move to Switzerland at the end of 2004 or early 2005, where he will serve as professor of systems biology at ETH and as a member of the ISB faculty. He will continue to spend 20-25 percent of his time at ISB, the institute said, where he will focus on “developing computational tools for proteomics, taking advantage of the Institute’s expertise in computational biology.”

The University of California Merced, the tenth and newest campus of the University of California system, has appointed Michael Colvin as professor in the Schools of Natural Sciences and Engineering. Colvin is a leader of the Computational Biology Group in the Biology and Biotechnology Research Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
