Chen awarded the Cozzarelli Prize

A paper co-authored Danny Chen-Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Applied Computational Mathematics & Statistics-was awarded the Cozzarelli Prize from the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. The paper ``3D Visualization and a Deep Learning Model Reveal Complex Fungal Parasite Networks in Behaviorally Manipulated Ants," by M. Fredericksen, Y. Zhang, M. Hazen, R. Loreto, C. Mangold, D.Z. Chen, and D. Hughes (Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci 114:12590-12595, 2017) was one of six papers published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences selected for this award on the basis of ``outstanding scientific excellence and originality".  Dr. Chen is a pioneer in the emerging research area of computational medicine. He uses computational geometry and optimization techniques to solve algorithmic problems arising in medical applications, such as cancer radiation therapy and biomedical imaging.
