Eolas' mission is to pursue a disciplined program of research and development in targeted areas in the field of bioinformatics, leading to the creation of innovative technologies of broad applicability in data analysis, visualization, collaboration and networking that enhance the quality of life for everyone. Eolas seeks to return value to its shareholders by commercializing these technologies through strategic alliances, licensing and spin offs.
Chairman - Dr. Michael D. Doyle
Dr. Doyle is Eolas' founder and architect of the company's research and development efforts. Dr. Doyle received his PhD. in Biology from the University of Illinois - Urbana. Prior to founding Eolas, Dr. Doyle served as Director for the Center for Knowledge Management at the University of California - San Francisco. While at the UCSF Medical Center, Dr. Doyle led a research team that developed fundamental web technologies that resulted in the '906 patent, which enabled Web browsers for the first time to act as platforms for fully-interactive embedded applications. To assist the University of California in commercializing the '906 patent, Dr. Doyle founded Eolas and he led Eolas until October 2007 when he assumed his new role as CEO of Eolas' subsidiary, Iomas Research, LLC. Dr. Doyle successfully guided Eolas through major litigation with Microsoft and the development of several key technologies. Dr. Doyle's seminal research in next-generation Web applications, 3-D biomedical visualization, and morpho-spatial genomic activity mapping has led to new technologies that have gained worldwide recognition. His transient-key cryptographic timestamp innovations solve previously intractable problems created by HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley regulations, and have been adopted in the x9.95 ANSI National Standard for secure timestamps. Dr. Doyle is an active philanthropist, supporting a variety of charitable causes in the sciences and the arts. He is the founder and President of the National Museum of Health and Medicine Foundation, and supports a number of other charitable projects through his family foundation, the Buonacorsi Foundation.
