I'm delighted to announce that Professor Chris Ponting, Chair of Medical Bioinformatics, Edinburgh University and Deputy Chair of the CMRC, has agreed to an email Q&A with us, so I'm now looking for questions to ask him. For reference, AfME had this brief Q&A with him, so ideally we want to avoid duplicating any questions there. As with our previous interviewees, chances are he won't be able to answer everything that you folks will want to ask him; he has specifically made it clear that he is unable to answer clinical care questions as he has no expertise in that area, and there may well be other questions that he won't be able to answer due to a number of reasons such as confidentiality, professional courtesy, etc. Having said that, if you are in doubt, just ask your question and if he can't answer it then he won't. This thread will close for questions 12 noon Sunday 3rd June and a maximum of 10 questions will be sent to Prof Ponting soon afterwards - which questions will be decided by a combination of number of likes each gets and my editorial decision. P.S. As tempting as it might be to ask about Crawley, I shouldn't bother - although I haven't raised the subject I'm 100% certain that topic won't be answered. P.P.S As Sasha quite sensibly points out, a question per post will help keep things organised, in terms of liking.
