News May 18, 2016
The appointment of Yana Stackpole, based in Boston MA, will help drive new business on the East Coast, and to support Qlucore’s expanding client base. Yana is a bench biologist with a PhD in biophysics and has an MSc in business management. Her areas of interest are big data analysis, genomics, biotechnology, discovery and partnerships.
The US is an important and fast-growing market for Qlucore, which has seen a rapid increase in new contracts for its Qlucore Omics Explorer software. In 2014 Qlucore opened an office in New York, strengthening its position in the States, and allowing it to capitalize on the strength of the biotech and pharma industries as well as all universities and government driven research institutes. Qlucore is a member of the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce, the preeminent Swedish-American transatlantic organization dedicated to the promotion, advancement, and protection of direct commercial relations between the United States and Sweden. Qlucore is also a member of the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council, an association of more than 600 biotechnology companies, universities, academic institutions and others dedicated to advancing cutting edge research.
Qlucore Omics Explorer is unique in that it allows the actual researchers – the people with the most biological insight – to study their own data and to look for patterns and structures. As a result, researchers do not need to be statistics or computer experts in order to use Qlucore Omics Explorer effectively.
As the world struggles to meet the increasing demand for energy, coupled with the rising levels of CO2 in the atmosphere from deforestation and the use of fossil fuels, photosynthesis in nature simply cannot keep up with the carbon cycle. In a recent paper, researchers report significant progress in optimizing systems that mimic the first stage of photosynthesis, capturing and harnessing light energy from the sun.
