INDIANAPOLIS -

A former Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY) executive has been named research fellow and vice president of digital technology at the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute in Indianapolis. Daniel Robertson previously served as senior director of research IT at Lilly and spent the last two years building out the IBRI's computational analytics, digital and data sciences capabilities.

Robertson also launched the institute's Applied Data Sciences Core. Chief Executive Officer David Broecker says "we are thrilled that Dan has opted to stay with the IBRI and continue to build on the success he's already had to date. He has been instrumental to launching one of the core areas of scientific expertise here at the IBRI, developing collaborations with multiple parties, and helping us tackle the integration of data and biology in ways that produce meaningful results."

His previous experience includes associate scientist and director of technical and administrative services and manager of the Facility for Computational Molecular Science at IUPUI, postdoctoral research associate at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington D.C. and 67 peer-reviewed papers.

Robertson says "I believe that IBRI has a unique opportunity to drive innovation within the state leveraging the strengths of its global life sciences companies, strong academic organizations and institutes, and flourishing technology sector. I plan to continue to drive collaborative projects within this space and bridge the gap between the academic and commercial organizations as well as between the complex life sciences and technology sectors."
