  • Earlier this year Axle recruited established NIAID operations leader, Gary Mays, who was responsible for long-range resource planning, asset management, and program evaluations for an institute budget of $5.3 billion. In his new role, Gary was to be leading the operational management and strategic planning of the bioinformatics business in long-term growth and operational efficiency, and partnering with business leaders and Government executives to develop new and emerging research technologies. In addition, the company added longtime Microsoft technology exec Rafat Sarosh as CTO early this year. 
  • Led by co-founders Vidya Chari Sharma and Suhas Sharma, Axle was one of five firms named to the 5-year NIAID Professional, Scientific and Technical Support Services IDIQ contract to provide support for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases current and emerging research priorities, to include a wide-array of activities ranging from specialized scientific expertise related to basic, translational and clinical research and R&D; to bioinformatics and computational biology. 
  • Axle’s flagship project, LabShare, is being used within various research laboratories at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Axle, who has a track record of supporting public and private research and health sectors for more than 10 years, supports several laboratories at the NIH in clinical and research applications.
