Marti Head is senior director of The Noldor and is building the Insights from Data team in the Platform Technology and Sciences (PTS) department of GSK Pharma R&D. Marti joined the computational chemistry group at GlaxoSmithKline in 1997, built and led the Philadelphia computational chemistry group from 2001 to 2007, and from 2007 to 2014 was the director of Computational Chemistry US, a 30-person, cross-site team responsible for proactively and creatively applying any and all computational technologies to drive programs across all of GSK’s therapeutic areas from target selection through to candidate selection. In May 2014, Marti took on a new role leading the Noldor, the collaborative GSK-Palantir team who are working closely together to embed this data integration and exploration platform widely throughout GSK. Marti is excited to be building the new Insights from Data team, whose mission is to provide the foundations, frameworks, tools, scientific insights, and innovative data analytics that will transform the way PTS uses and reuses data to drive decision making across the full spectrum of PTS accountabilities. Marti received her B.S. in Chemistry from Hamline University in St Paul MN, received her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Duke University, and was a National Research Council postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Advanced Research in Biotechnology in Rockville MD.
