Philip Eric Bourne (born 1953) is a United States researcher in health informatics. He is the First Associate Director for Data Science at the National Institutes of Health, where his projects include managing the Big Data to Knowledge initiative. He has contributed to textbooks and he is a strong supporter of open access literature and software. His diverse interests have spanned structural biology, medical informatics, information technology, structural bioinformatics, scholarly communication and pharmaceutical sciences.[3]

Career[edit]

Bourne was trained as a physical chemist in the mid to late 1970s and obtained his PhD in 1979[1] at the The Flinders University of South Australia. He moved to the University of Sheffield to do postdoctoral research during 1979-1981,[4] followed by a move to Columbia University, New York, in 1981. In 1995 he moved to University of California, San Diego, where he is currently a Professor in the Department of Pharmacology.

He is known for writing the book Unix for VMS Users (1990)[5] and for being co-developer of the Combinatorial Extension algorithm for the three-dimensional alignment of protein structures,[6] together with I. Shindyalov (1998). Since 1999 he is co-director of the Protein Data Bank.[7] He was director of the ISCB (2002–2003). He is a fellow of the American Medical Informatics Association since 2002.[8] He is founding Editor in Chief of PLoS Computational Biology (2005-). In 2007 he co-founded SciVee[9] and has been elected Fellow of the AAAS under Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2011[10] and fellow of the ISCB in 2011.[11] Bourne is an editor of the popular Ten Simple Rules series of editorials published in the PLoS Computational Biology journal.[12] He has served as the Associate Vice Chancellor for Innovation and Industrial Alliances [13] and a professor of pharmacology at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).[14][15] He is an advisor to the Hypothes.is project[16] and Associate Director for Data Science at the National Institutes of Health where his projects include managing the Big Data to Knowledge initiative.[17][18]

He is author of numerous scientific articles and book chapters and editor of the Structural Bioinformatics textbook.[19][20] and Pharmacy Informatics[21]

Awards[edit]

In 2010 he won Microsoft's Jim Gray e-Science award[22] and in 2009 won the Benjamin Franklin Award (2009).[23][24]

Personal[edit]

Bourne has been married since 1983 to Roma Chalupa and they have two children: Scott Bourne (1985-) and Melanie Bourne (1997-).[citation needed] Bourne's interest include motorcycles,[25] flying, and hiking.
