Professor Gyan Bhanot, along with postdoctoral fellows Sahand Hormoz and Adel Dayarian (at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara) and Professor Michael Biehl (at the Univ. of Groningen), were awarded first place in three of four challenges in the Species Translation Challenge organized by IBM Research and Philip Morris International (PMI) R&D, presented in Athens, Greece. This interdisciplinary and trans-Atlantic effort was part of the SBV (systems biology verification) IMPROVER project, designed to promote the development of new methods for the analysis of large scale scientific datasets of medical and pharmaceutical relevance. This particular challenge focused on understanding the limits of rodent models for human biology. Congratulations, Gyan and team!
