Victor Markowitz, Scott Clarke, Beth Kennedy


Victor Markowitz is leaving his post as CIO and senior vice president of data management systems at Gene Logic to return to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to head up a new biological data management and technology center. Prior to joining Gene Logic in 1998, he was a staff scientist and project leader in the Data Management Research and Development group at LBNL.

In November, Gene Logic announced layoffs of 50 staff in database development and production, and said it would add positions in contract study services, marketing, and sales as part of a move to strengthen its contract services operation.

Scott Clarke has been appointed president and CEO of Discovery Innovations, a new web-based informatics spinoff of BioSpace, where he was president and CEO. Other BioSpace executives will go to Discovery innovations, including Beth Kennedy, executive vice president, who formerly worked as an IT manager at Incyte.
