David Hall joins Rho as principal investigator of bioinformatics
Rho, a privately held CRO focused on bringing new products to market through a full range of product development services, has announced that David Hall has joined its team as a principal investigator (PI) specializing in bioinformatics at its Research Triangle Park headquarters in North Carolina. David brings more than 12 years of experience in bioinformatics as a principal investigator, general manager, project manager, bioinformatics lead, programmer/analyst, data modeler and software engineer.
Hall will be the group leader for bioinformatics in the consolidated Division of Allergy, Immunology and Transplantation (DAIT) application of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and of the NIH proposal.
Previously, Hall worked at Syngenta where he specialized in genome informatics, overseeing the development of genomic data systems and tools supporting trait gene discovery and molecular breeding. Additionally, he was the principal investigator on two NIH-funded contracts focusing on bioinformatics and data coordination while at RTI International. As one of the initial hires into the RTI International Bioinformatics Program, Hall played a central role in business development activities resulting in the award of more than $40M in federal contracts and grants with a bioinformatics or -omics focus.
