 Software Engineer, Applied Dynamics International, Ann Arbor.  She holds a
 Ph.D. in physics from the University of Maryland at College Park.
     *  Deepak Badoni, Principal Engineer with Cognitive Bionics, from Senior
 Engineer, Aon Impact Forecasting, Chicago.  He holds a Ph.D. in structural
 engineering from the University of Notre Dame.
     *  Mechelle Mahnke, Executive Assistant with Cognitive Bionics, from
 Office Assistant, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.  She holds a B.S. in
 Economics and Management from Eastern Michigan University and an Associate's

     *  Scott Diehl, Software Engineer, currently a senior studying Computer
 Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
     *  Geoff Henny, Business Development Consultant, former VP Business
 Development with Triada Knowledge Discovery Software, Ann Arbor, and Director

     Cognitive Bionics provides the technical and software development
 capability to grow the biotech startups and University spin-offs that will
 help Michigan become a life sciences powerhouse, according to Jensen.  He
 explained that the medical device and bioinformatics fields both lend
 themselves to the use of computer and sensor technologies.
     "Several of the medical device technologies we are developing for our
 clients would not have been possible 10 years ago," added Jensen.  Peter
 Jensen and Steve Schwartz -- both recipients of post graduate degrees in
 electrical engineering and computer science from top universities -- co-
 founded Cognitive Bionics in 1998 after working at ElectroScientific
 Industries, Motorola, Applied Intelligent Systems, Consolidated Research,
 Interstate Risk Management and several other high-tech companies.  Their
 vision was and is to develop a world-class organization that can deliver
 creative "out of the box" signal processing and bioinformatics solutions to
 the life science industry.

 environments of a staff that has significant research and commercial
 experience.
