Just getting started here.
Chris Leonard, Ph.D.
I'm currently Director of Translational Research and Technology at a small pharmaceutical research and development firm working on disorders of the central nervous system, which is a roundabout way of saying I run an IT shop with some interesting scientific computing requirements and do other things  that need to get done (e.g. design and run clinical trials, etc.).
I've got a strong background in clinical microbiology, formerly a licensed clinical microbiology lab tech and 5 years of teaching the same to medical students at Cornell Med during my Ph.D. program. My research interests have included the molecular biology of viral DNA replication (Ph.D.), molecular oncology (post-doc at Johns Hopkins) and bioinformatics studies of the evolution of cell-cycle control mechanisms (GenBank Fellow, NCBI/NLM/NIH). Of particular relevance in this context, I'm an expert hunter-gatherer and synthesizer of biomedical information and interested in contributing to the Health project.
A passing interest in the topology of networks (including social networks) has led me to the discovery that I have an Erdős numberof 3.
