Speaker

Christopher Thorpe
Christopher Thorpe is information architect for the Current Science Group, publishers of BioMed Central, Genome Biology and Faculty of 1000. His role encompasses the technical design, architecture, and development of a framework for scholarly publishing which integrates an increasing collection of resources. After a career as a bioinformatician he architected websites for clients such as United International Pictures and Unilever before joining Garland Publishing where he worked on multimedia and electronic delivery of textbooks (Molecular Biology of the Cell). Over two years ago he joined Current Science to architect Genome Biology, a combined web and print journal which includes open-access peer-reviewed research papers and scholarly reviews and then went on to work on BioMed Central. He has a long-standing interest in bioinformatics and in the development of modern forms of publishing in which the research data and methodology, and the peer-reviewed research publication are more tightly integrated and indexed. When not immersed in science publishing he spends his spare time as a volunteer developing the website and e-curation system for a major British sculpture charity.
