The BISR employs
a talented team of bioinformatics personnel each with a wide range of
computational skills. Each of the staff are available to help you
with your bioinformatics needs.
The BISR is Directed by Jason H. Moore, Ph.D.
Dr. Moore is the Frank Lane Research Scholar in Computational
Genetics, Professor of Genetics and Professor of Community and Familiy
Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School. Dr. Moore leads a
successful NIH-funded bioinformatics research program at the
Norris-Cotton Cancer Center. Further information about Dr. Moore
and his research interests can be found here. His blog can be found here.
1) Applied Bioinformatics and Data Mining
Carol Ringelberg, M.S. Ms.
Ringelberg joined the BISR in 2003 to provide bioinformatics support
for microarray analysis. Ms. Ringelberg graduated with an M.S. degree
in Biology from Florida State University in 1985 and has over 20 years
of experience working as a research assistant/associate in the
biomedical sciences. Ms. Ringelberg is the primary point of contact for
faculty needing microarray support.
Computer Programming and Software Engineering
Peter Andrews, B.S. Mr. Andrews
was hired in 2006 to provide computer programming and software
engineering support for the BISR. Mr. Andrews graduated Magna cum Laude
from Brown University in 1984 with a B.S. degree in Computer Science
and has more than 20 years of computer programming and software
engineering experience. He has significant expertise in the design and
development of complex software and is proficient in a number of
commonly used computer languages, including C++ and Java.
Database Development and Administration
Tom Caldwell, B.S. Mr.
Caldwell was hired in 2007 to provide database design, development and
programming support for the BISR. Mr. Caldwell graduated Cum Laude from
North Carolina State University in 1979 with a B.S. degree in Computer
Science and has more than 25 years of computer programming and database
development experience. He has significant expertise in the design and
development of complex databases and is proficient in a number of
commonly used database development platforms, including Oracle.
High-Performance Computing and Systems Administration
Pete Schmitt, B.S. Mr.
Schmitt joined the BISR in 2005 as technical director and systems
administrator. Mr. Schmitt earned a B.S. degree in Computer Information
Systems in 1993 and has more than 20 years of systems administration
and computer programming experience. Mr. Schmitt built and manages our
500-processor parallel computer. He also manages all PCs, workstations
and servers for the BISR.
5) Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG)
David Jewell, Ph.D. Dr.
Jewell serves as a liason to the NCI for the NCCC caBIG project.
The goal of this project is to coordinate with other cancer
centers to adopt open-source and freely available bioinformatics tools
developed with support from the NIH.
Paul Thompson, Ph.D. Dr. Thompson works closely with Dr. Jewell to assist with the adoption of caBIG bioinformatics tools for use by the NCCC.
