Here is my long overdue introduction to the group.

Kevin Doyle joined the Professional Services team at Teranode in  
2005.  He has worked closely with clients to develop laboratory  
automation solutions for chemistry and biology projects.  Last year,  
Teranode released a new product called Teranode Fuel, which is a  
platform for creating semantically enabled research intelligence  
applications for executives, managers and researchers in Life  
Sciences.  Kevin is now focused on delivering client solutions using  
the Teranode Fuel platform at several major pharmaceutical companies  
in the areas of biological therapeutics, portfolio management and  
clinical trials.
