2008 HealthGrid Conference (Chicago)

Met twice with Ian Foster, Jonathan Silverstein and their Argonne Globus colleagues. Discussed public health use cases. We also had an excellent meeting with the following Globus team members:

  • Ravi Madduri, closely involved in caBIG
  • Raj Kettimuthu, GridFTP project lead
  • Frank Siebenlist, security architect
Everyone was extremely generous with their time and support for CDC's nascent public health grid community.

It is obvious that working directly with the Globus team will give us a much higher chance of success in achieving our vision of a national public health grid.
