I'm Susie Stephens, a Principal Product Manager for Life Sciences at 
Oracle. My role is to enhance the Oracle Database, Application Server 
and Collaboration Suite products to make them more suited to the 
requirements of the life sciences industry. As such, I was heavily 
involved in the implementation of an RDF Data Model in the latest 
release of the Oracle Database. I'm also Oracle's lead for working with 
W3C on Semantic Web activities. I have a PhD in Physiology.
