Susan Audino Joins CloudLIMS’ Scientific Advisory Board
CloudLIMS, a Laboratory Information Management company specialized in offering data management solutions for cannabis testing laboratories, today announced that Dr. Susan Audino, Chair, Cannabis Advisory Panel and Chair, Cannabis Working Group at AOAC International, has joined its Scientific Advisory Board, contributing her rich experience in the cannabis industry to the company’s informatics solutions.
Dr. Susan Audino is an A2LA lead assessor and instructor, a laboratory consultant, a board member of the Center for Research on Environmental Medicine in Maryland, and also serves on several expert advisory panels for the cannabis industry. As a specialized consultant, she will provide advice and lend her expertise to improve the company’s cloud-based Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to meet regulatory compliance and quality standards for cannabis testing laboratories.
Dr. Susan Audino obtained a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry with an analytical chemistry major, physical and biochemistry minor areas. She currently owns and operates a consulting firm to serve chemical and biological laboratories. Dr. Audino’s interest directly involves cannabis consumer safety and protection, and promotes active research towards the development of official test methods specifically for the cannabis industry, and to advocate appropriate clinical research. In addition to serving on Expert Review Panels, she is chairing the first Cannabis Advisory Panel and the working group with AOAC International. She is a member of the Executive Committee of the ASTM Cannabis Section and has served as a consultant to numerous cannabis laboratories and state regulatory bodies.
"We are extremely pleased that Dr. Susan Audino has agreed to join our Scientific Advisory Board. Her experience in achieving standards in cannabis testing will prove to be a major asset in achieving compliance standards, and offer a more robust Laboratory Information Management System to cannabis testing laboratories", said Arun Apte, CEO at CloudLIMS.
Researchers Awarded $28M for Illuminating Druggable Genome NIH GrantsNews

Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart AttackNews
A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
