Officer Election Results

Many thanks to the 319 members (17%) who participated in the ISCB Officer elections for the upcoming term beginning January 21, 2005. Based on the election results, the ISCB board of directors has ratified the election as follows:

Vice Presidents:
Burkhard Rost of Columbia University
Barbara Bryant of Millennium Pharmaceuticals

Toni Kazic of University of Missouri – Columbia

David Rocke of University of California – Davis

In addition to the above, Michael Gribskov of Purdue University was elected last year as the President-elect (he was already serving as President at the time, therefore ensuring a second term), and will therefore begin his second term as President along with the other Officers elected in this cycle. Full ballot results are detailed at http://www.iscb.org/20041017_results.shtml.

We would like to acknowledge Professor Anna Tramontano, whose term as Vice President will conclude in January 2005. Anna will have served in the position of Vice President for three years with a concerted effort toward the development of an international affiliates program, serving as chair of the Affiliates & SIGs Committee. Although the next chair will be able to enjoy the fruits of Anna’s labor, she laid a solid foundation upon which to build. Thank you Anna!
