Jacob de Vlieg
CEO and Scientific Director Netherlands e-Science Centre, Professor of Computational Design & Discovery, Radboud University Nijmegen (part-time):
"The main challenge is to implement a cultural change with respect to the way we approach science and assess scientific efforts."
"It is not about trying to capture a bit of everything, but to be able to create a detailed description of the specific biology that is relevant to your question."
Wim Verhaegh, Principal scientist, Molecular Diagnostics, Philips Research

Professor Johan den Dunnen, LUMC:
"We need to share everything we know long before we start writing a formal publication."
Judith Boer (EMC, LUMC): "There is already a lot of work to be done before you can start concentrating on the problems relating to the actual integration of the data."
