Gene Network Sciences Names Departing Merck Head of Genetics Eric Schadt as Co-Chair of Scientific Advisory Board
Date:4/7/2009

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Gene Network Sciences, Inc. today announced that it named Dr. Eric Schadt, a leading researcher in the field of genomics-driven drug discovery, co-chair of its Scientific Advisory Board.

Dr. Schadt will be leaving his position as Executive Scientific Director of Genetics at pharmaceutical giant Merck to join forces with the departing head of Merck oncology, Dr. Stephen Friend, to create Sage, an open-access distributed data platform designed to enable collaboration by integrating the myriad of genomic data sets in the public and private domains. At Merck's Rosetta subsidiary, Dr. Schadt founded the Genetics department. His work at Merck focused on elucidating the genetic circuitry of common human diseases such as type 2 diabetes and obesity using novel integrative genomics approaches based on genetic and molecular profiling data. He has helped define a new field in network biology -- the genetics of gene expression, or "integrative genomics." Dr. Schadt's pioneering work in integrative genomics has been published in a series of groundbreaking papers, culminating in two seminal Nature papers in 2008 that revealed the genetic circuitry underlying obesity and metabolic disease.

Dr. Schadt is also an Affiliate Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Washington in Seattle, and he was recently appointed as a Fellow in the Institute of Synthetic and Systems Biology at Imperial College London. Prior to joining Rosetta, Dr. Schadt was a Senior Research Scientist at Roche Bioscience. He received his B.S. in applied mathematics/computer science from California Polytechnic State University, his M.A. in pure mathematics from UCD, and his Ph.D. in bio-mathematics from UCLA.

"I am looking forward to the opportunity to assist GNS in their efforts to accelerate the medical impact that is starting to be reaped from the emerging
