As most of you know if you’ve looked at the OpenWetWare homepage, we’ve had a search open for a second full-time member of OpenWetWare team. After launching a new search for an OpenWetWare managing director in the last few months, we’ve extended an offer to Lorrie LeJeune. And we are excited to say that she has accepted.
Lorrie will bring a diverse set of skills to OpenWetWare. Most notably, she’s worked previously both as a laboratory research scientist at Collaborative Research, Inc. (now Oscient Pharmaceuticals, Inc.) and as an editor at O’Reilly Media, Inc. for all of O’Reilly’s bioinformatics books. She even drew the artwork on some of the O’Reilly covers! Lorrie will officially begin work full-time at OpenWetWare on February 4, 2008.
Please join us in welcoming Lorrie to the OpenWetWare community!
