Kevin Barry , PhD

Email: kbarry@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-7811

Dr. Barry aims to determine how innate immune cells recognize cancer and regulate immune responses. He previously identified a novel set of immune cells that regulate immune responses that protect patients from melanoma. The number of these cells in a patient’s tumor can identify those patients who will benefit the most from immunotherapy. Dr. Barry and his team are learning more about the signals that control this set of innate immune cells in cancer. His goal is to generate novel therapies to increase cancer-killing immune responses and save lives from cancer.

James (Jim) Brinkley , MD, PhD

Email: brinkley@u.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 543-3954

Dr. Brinkley's primary research interest is biomedical informatics - the representation, management, sharing, visualization and utilization of neuroscience data and knowledge. He is the founder of the field of Structural Informatics, which has as its goal the development of methods for representing the structure of the body at multiple levels of detail, as for using these methods for organizing and integrating biomedical information. His aim is to find ways to represent the structure or the body in computer-readable form, and find ways to associate these representations with the myriad biomedical data that are available. His goal is to provide a structural information framework for integrating a huge variety of big and small biomedical data. Dr. Brinkley's projects have included anatomy education, brain mapping through the national Human Brain Project, cardiovascular data integration, clinical trials data integration through the national Clinical translational Science Awards, radiological image annotation and integration through the RadLex project, and craniofacial malformations data integration through the national FaceBase consortium. He is also interested in developing web-accessible computer applications utilizing these representations to solve practical problems in clinical medicine, research and education.
