The editor-in-chief of ONB (Open Network Biology), a new journal with an emphasis on new science and the hosting of “reproducible models”, will review this disruptive alternative to traditional approaches to publishing data, models, and tools."
Dr. Schadt oversees the scientific strategy for Pacific Biosciences, including creating the vision for next-generation applications of the company's technology, contributing to the evolution of Pacific Biosciences' transformative sequencing technology, and playing a key role in the company's strategic relationships.
He is also a founding member of Sage Bionetworks - an open access genomics initiative designed to build and support databases and an accessible platform for creating innovative dynamic disease models.
Application of engineering principles and equipment to biology and medicine. It includes the development and fabrication of life-support systems for underwater and space exploration, devices for medical treatment (seedialysis, prosthesis), and instruments for monitoring biological processes. Development has been particularly rapid in the area of artificial organs, which culminated in the implantation of an artificial heart into a human being in 1982. Bioengineers also develop equipment that enables humans to maintain body functions in hostile environments, such as the space suits worn by astronauts during extravehicular maneuvers.
