About Dr. Wolfgang Rumpf
Dr. Wolfgang Rumpf obtained his PhD in molecular biology from The Ohio State University in 1997, where he studied evolutionary questions using molecular phylogenetic techniques. His post-doctoral work at the Ohio State University College of Dentistry used those same techniques to help identify dental pathogens involved in periodontitis.
Following his post-doctoral work he rapidly became entrenched
in the corporate world, working first for LabBook Inc. as a
Bioinformaticist and then Rescentris Inc., where he served as a Product
Specialist for the CERF ELN.
After the sudden and unexpected demise of irisnote, Wolfgang returned to research. He is now a Research Scientist at the Battelle Institute for Mathematical Medicine at The Nationwide Research Institute at Children's Hospital in Columbus Ohio.
In addition, Dr. Rumpf has been teaching graduate-level bioinformatics at UMUC since 2006.
Wolfgang has three children (identical twin boys age 12, Beowulf
and Hiro and 18 year old Christopher)) and the best fiancee in the
(Christine). If you like science-oriented blogs, you can read
