Hired someone new and exciting? Promoted a rising star? Finally solved that hard-to-fill spot? Share the news with us, and we’ll share it with others. That’s right. Send us your changes, and we’ll find a home for them. Don’t be shy. Everyone wants to know who is coming and going.

And here is our regular feature in which we highlight a different person each week. This time around, we note that Pattern Bioscience hired Carey-Ann Burnham as chief clinical officer. Previously, she worked was professor of pathology and immunology, molecular microbiology, pediatrics and medicine at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.


But all work and no play makes for a dull chief clinical officer. So in her spare time, Burnham enjoys running, a passion she’s had for about 20 years. Three mornings a week, she gets out early and does three to five miles while admiring the homes in the national historic district where she lives. And on weekends, she does 10 to 12 miles. Besides good exercise, the routine is antidote to daily stresses. “There’s no phone or e-mail popping up. It’s when I can think about my day, try to solve problems. It helps be more creative.” And this doesn’t include the handful of out-of-town trips she makes each year to run half marathons.
