    Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the Departments of Psychiatry and Internal Medicine, and founding Associate Director of the Center for Computational Medicine and Biology, at the University of Michigan Medical School. Trained as a biophysicist, Athey is now recognized as one of the nation’s experts in the new field of ‘Translational Bioinformatics’. In the Mid-1980s, Brian proposed the double helical crossed-linker model for the structure of chromatin, once quite controversial, it is now generally accepted. Brian established the first nationwide Internet2 Visible Human Project demonstration under contract with the National Library of Medicine, was Principal Investigator of the DARPA Virtual Soldier Project, and he currently heads the NIH National Center for Integrative Biomedical Informatics (, one of seven NIH Roadmap Centers for Biomedical Computing. Brian is Director of the Biomedical Informatics Program in the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research, and is national co-chair of the Clinical and Translational Sciences Award (CTSA) Informatics Key Function Committee (IKFC). He currently serves as a special advisor to the Director of the Division of Program Coordinator, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI), in the office of the Director of the NIH. In 2000, Brian was named a Peace Fellow of the Federation of American Scientists ( for his work in the 1990s to combat biological warfare and terrorism.
