The February issue of the HHMI Bulletin, published by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, features a profile of Ted Goldstein, a UCSC alumnus and former Apple executive who is now pursuing a Ph.D. in biomolecular engineering.

Goldstein earned his B.A. in computer and information sciences at UCSC in 1983, then spent 30 years working in Silicon Valley, including a stint as a vice president at Apple. Now, as a UCSC graduate student, he is working on cancer genomics projects with David Haussler, professor of biomolecular engineering and a HHMI investigator. Goldstein is also a UC Santa Cruz Foundation trustee and a member of the Dean's Advisory Council for the Baskin School of Engineering.

In the profile article, Goldstein's Ph.D. research is described as an "ambitious vision" to create a "Facebook for cancer." For the complete story, go to "High-Tech Reboot."
