Bioinformatics Program Research Areas
Chenwei (Alex) Luo made his way to Georgia Tech after completing a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and Automation from Beijing University of Aeronautics/Astronautics and a master’s degree in Physics from Peking University. While at Peking University, Mark Borodovsky, founder of the Georgia Tech Bioinformatics Program, visited the campus and Alex served as his host. Alex was interested in metagenomics and the work of a new Georgia Tech Professor, Kostas Konstantinidis. This attracted Alex to Georgia Tech, where he earned his doctoral degree under the advisement of Professor Konstantinidis.
Congratulations to Shashwat Nagar (MS) and Will Overholt (PhD), who were recognized as the 2017 Outstanding Students in Bioinformatics at Georgia Tech! Each student received a cash award funded by the J. Leland Jackson Endowed Fellowships Fund in Bioinformatics. Both students were selected for demonstrated excellence in their academic studies and their Bioinformatics research.
