Layne M. Johnson, serves as translational science information specialist in
the Health Sciences Libraries at the University of MinnesotaMinneapolis
(UMN) and library fellow in the Institute for Health Informatics. His formal
education is in the life sciences, where he has earned a bachelor's in biology
from Dana College, Blair NE, an master's in bacteriology, and a doctoral degree
in microbiology from Iowa State UniversityAmes. His post-doctoral research
was funded by Monsanto Company and was performed at the University of OklahomaNorman.
He received grants from the National Environmental Health Association and National
Science Foundation as an undergraduate.
Johnson has always been a heavy user of information and recalls using local college libraries to support his scientific studies while in high school. Once end-user search systems became available for biomedical researchers, he was the first laboratory investigator to use BRS Colleague to search MEDLINE at Lederle Laboratories in Pearl River, NY. From there, his career formally shifted to the world of information and his first role as senior biomedical information scientist supported research programs in molecular biology, infectious diseases, vaccines, and a variety of other areas. He became increasingly curious about the world of scientific information and held several global information management roles, the most recent with Pfizer. He joined the Health Sciences Libraries and Institute for Health Informatics at UMN in late 2009. He works closely with the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at UMN, where he is responsible for research networking systems, and biomedical health informatics initiatives and serves on the steering committee of the Office of Community Engagement for Health. He is active in MLA, Special Libraries Association, and American Medical Informatics Association and is the recruitment and evaluation lead for the University Partnership for Health Informatics consortium, a Office of the National Coordinator-funded university-based training program designed to prepare students to efficiently implement electronic health records and health information exchange systems.
Johnson lives in downtown Minneapolis with his super-intelligent Scottish terrier, Cooper, and will be a primary instructor for LINKED: An Intro to the Semantic Web for Medical Librrians and Biomedical Information Professional, day-long continuing education course at MLA '12.

Holly Falk-Krzesinski, PhD, is research assistant professor and director, Research Team Support & Development at the NIH CTSA-supported Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Science (NUCATS) Institute. Falk-Krzesinski directs collaboration enhancement and research development and grantsmanship for clinical and translational team-based, cross-disciplinary research. Connecting the science of team science (research on scientific teams) with the praxis of team science (the practical aspects of science performed in teams), Falk-Krzesinski’s group serves as a conduit to translate empirical research findings about team science into evidence-based effective practices for scientific teams, institutions, and funders of collaborative team science. Falk-Krzesinski has considerable expertise related to the development and implementation of research networking tools (knowledge management systems for the research enterprise). These tools support the efforts of researchers, librarians, and research development professionals to initiate and nurture new interdisciplinary partnerships and secure collaborative extramural research funding. Falk-Krzesinski has recently developed two interdisciplinary, team science training resources to help prepare trainees and investigators to engage effectively in collaborative research and team science: a graduate-level Team Science course and TeamScience.net , an online learning tool. And, finally, as chair of the Annual International Science of Team Science (SciTS) Conference , she is developing a strong, interdisciplinary community of practice for team science, SciTS, and interdisciplinary research training.
