Mike joined CBMi as a senior data integration analyst in 2009 after serving for eight years as a bioinformatics investigator for GlaxoSmithkline. His unique informatics-based knowledge in genomics and other “bench” technologies as they apply to clinical research has enabled him to develop systems that support CBMi's long-term personalized medicine goals. These include sample and data management, integration of genomics, clinical, and imaging data, intuitive query and visualization systems of integrated data repositories, and mobile health applications. Mike earned a master's in biotechnology with a bioinformatics focus from the University of Pennsylvania and a bachelor's in biochemistry and molecular biology from the Pennsylvania State University.
