Information Systems and Network Administrator
This KUDOS award recognizes Oleg Shats, an Information Systems and Network Administrator, for his outstanding performance and service to Bioinformatics Shared Resources at the Eppley Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Oleg has been instrumental in several projects aimed at developing and supporting information technology infrastructure for the center including facilitating intercampus efforts at UNMC, UNL, UNO and Creighton University in the maintenance and the use of molecular modeling and DNA techniques. He also led a team of programmers who successfully developed the Pancreatic Cancer Collaborative Registry, a web-based directory aimed at collecting standardized information on pancreatic cancer patients. This registry has effectively put UNMC “on the map” in the field of Bioinformatics Shared Research. Due to Oleg’s success with this project, several other leading cancer researchers and institutions are looking at extending this technology to other types of cancers. With Oleg today are his wife, Aelita [Ae-li-ta]; his parents Raisa and Yakov Shats; Director of the Epply Institute, Kenneth Cowan; and Oleg’s supervisor, Simon Sherman. Please join me in congratulating Oleg Shats on his continued successes.
