From the CEO Desk


Keith Elliston, CEO tranSMART

March 16th, 2015

Spring is just around the corner, though with Boston breaking all records for snowfall this year, it is a bit hard to believe it will come anytime soon. However, the Foundation is actively preparing for spring, and will be hosting a number of key events in the coming months.

We have our annual BioIT World related events this year, April 21-23. We will be exhibiting at the BioIT World meeting, have our quarterly board meeting, hosting a community meeting, and hosting in person 3C committee meetings. It will be a busy week. The following week, April 28-30, we are hosting our first Datathon, with our co-host the Michael J. Fox Foundation. This event will also be held in Boston - so we are keeping our fingers crossed for the arrival of spring.

We will be releasing another major patch release resulting from our ongoing ‘Bug-fix-athon’, which will be 1.2.5. The VM for v1.2.4 has also just been released - check it out on VirtualBox. Our membership drive continues, and we would like to welcome onboard Philips as a new Silver member. There is a lot happening this spring, and a lot to be involved with at the tranSMART Foundation.

Best regards,
