President of Systems Biology Institute Appointed to Advisory Board of Strategic News Service's Nutritional Microanalysis Global Initiative

FRIDAY HARBOR, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/13 -- The Strategic News Service's Nutritional Microanalysis Global Initiative is pleased to announce the appointment of Leroy Hood to its Scientific Advisory Board.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have a scientist of Leroy Hood's abilities joining us in this important new initiative. I have no doubt that his presence will help us unravel the important scientific breakthroughs in connecting the detailed knowledge of what we eat, drink and breathe, with our health," said Mark Anderson, SNS CEO and FiRe Chair.

Dr. Leroy Hood is a pioneer in the systems approach to biology and medicine. His research has focused on the study of molecular immunology, biotechnology, and genomics. Dr. Hood's professional career began at Caltech, where he and his colleagues developed the DNA gene sequencer and synthesizer and the protein synthesizer and sequencer -- four instruments that paved the way for the successful mapping of the human genome. He is the President and Founder of the Institute for Systems Biology.

A pillar in the biotechnology field, Dr. Hood has played a role in founding more than 14 biotechnology companies, including Amgen, Applied Biosystems, Darwin, The Accelerator, and Integrated Diagnostics. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. Of the more than 6,000 scientists worldwide who belong to one or more of these academies, he is one of only 15 people accepted to all three. He is also a member of the American Philosophical Society and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His work has been widely published, and he has co-authored numerous textbooks in biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, and genetics, as well as a popular book on the human genome project, The Code of Codes.

The goal of the Strategic News Service Global Initiative on Nutritional Microanalysis is to create a new field of medicine and a research platform for understanding human health and disease, and their connection to the human genome, by evaluating human inputs on a chemical level, and thereby better understand their effects on the body's processes. NM currently operates in the US, and its work is the direct output of ideas that have grown from the SNS Future in Review Conferences. FiRe consistently creates new efforts in global cooperation, with the goal of improving the world through the appropriate application of technology.

Dr. Hood is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Lasker Award for Studies of Immune Diversity, the Kyoto Prize in advanced technology, the Heinz Award for pioneering work in Systems Biology, and most recently, the coveted NAE 2011 Fritz J. and Delores H. Russ Prize for automating DNA sequencing that revolutionized biomedicine and forensic science.

He received the 2012 National Medal of Science, the highest honor the President of the United States can award a citizen. In addition to having received 17 honorary degrees from prestigious universities in the US and abroad, Lee has published more than 700 peer-reviewed articles and currently holds 36 patents.

Strategic News Service was founded in 1995 as the first subscriber-based online news service. Its members include Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Mark Hurd, Paul Jacobs, and the top managers in technology and finance companies around the world: Apple, Google, British Telecom, SpaceX, Amazon, Telstra, Oracle, Nuance, Microsoft, Dell, HP, Cisco, Intel, and others. The SNS Global Report is the most accurate publicly ranked predictive newsletter in computing and communications.

SNS founded the FiRe Conference, which the Economist calls "the best technology conference in the world," in 2003. FiRe exposes global thought leaders to new high-potential ideas as part of an accurate portrait of the future. Participants often then create technology-based solutions to current local and global problems. FiRe 2014 will take place May 20-23 at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, CA.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Dion Hinchcliffe is an internationally recognized digital expert, bestselling book author, frequent keynote speaker, analyst, futurist, and transformation expert based in Washington, DC. He is currently Chief Strategy Officer at the industry-leading digital strategy and online community solutions firm, 7Summits.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
