Institute Presentation

The University of Melbourne eResearch group under the leadership of Professor Richard O. Sinnott is internationally recognised for its advanced, security-oriented platforms development. Prior to his appointment at Melbourne, Prof. Sinnott lead the National e-Science Centre (NeSC) at Glasgow and was integrally involved in all aspects of the Ł250m UK e-Science core programme. The research excellence of Prof. Sinnott’s group at NeSC was recognised by a prestigious 5-year platform grant awarded by EPSRC for its security research. Prof. Sinnott has over 130 publications across a wide range of computing science areas with recent emphasis on security and applications-oriented virtual research environments. These include a portfolio of post-genomic life science projects in the UK and internationally.

The personnel who will be directly involved in the VRE development and support include:

Anthony Stell - an advanced Grid engineer for 5 years. Anthony has successfully completed numerous major projects including the MRC funded VOTES project; the EU FW7 funded AvertIT project (where he was the sole software engineer responsible for developing a research platform currently being used for a multi-centre clinical trial in prediction of adverse hypotensive events in brain trauma patients across Europe), and more recently Anthony built the ENS@T database environment to be extended in this project. 

Christopher Bayliss - an advanced Grid engineer for 4 years. Christopher has successfully completed many major projects including the Scottish Bioinformatics Research Network, Pharming of microRNA, Grid-Enabled Microarray Expression Profile Service and the Proxy Credential Auditing project.

The University of Melbourne will lead the development, support and maintenance of the adrenal cancer Virtual Research Environment and the associated clinical trials infrastructure in WP1. This will require engagement with all of the other work packages.
