As co-director of the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research, Dr. Martone has been leading the development of databases for light and electron microscopic data and new techniques and software tools to acquire and represent this knowledge within realistic neuronal models. She was a major contributor in the creation of the Cell-Centered Database, one of the first Internet databases for cell-level structural data. Her defining work on the CCDB and neuroinformatics in general has brought the Martone group international recognition.As a member of the leadership team of the Biomedical Informatics Research Network project integrating high speed networks and distributed high-performance computing for fostering large-scale collaborations in biomedical science, Dr. Martone serves as the scientific coordinator of the Mouse BIRN test bed. One of several research projects driving the development of BIRN, the Mouse BIRN test bed is dedicated to developing methods for multiscale investigations of mouse models of human neurological disease. Dr. Martone is the co-chair of BIRN’s Ontology Task Force, tasked with advancing database interoperability across each of BIRN databases by establishing a common lexicon to share knowledge sources.ORCID ID: orcid.org/0000-0002-8406-3871Twitter: @memartone
