Dr. Christopher Mancuso of the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering has been awarded the Kirschstein-NRSA postdoctoral fellowship from the National Institute of
General Medical Sciences at the National Institutes of Health.
This fellowship is awarded to enhance the research training of promising postdoctoral candidates who have the potential to become productive, independent investigators in scientific health-related research fields relevant to the missions of NIGMS.
The fellowship provides a three-year stipend as well as an institutional allowance of $10k a year. As part of the fellowship, Dr. Mancuso will develop new computational approaches that leverage large-scale gene interaction networks to create accurate and interpretable data-driven models for elucidating the roles of genes in complex traits and diseases. This work will be carried out with Dr. Arjun Krishnan, Assistant Professor in the in the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Congratulations to Dr. Christopher Mancuso on receiving this award!
