NBIC Young investigator award for Groningen bioinformatics research

28 April 2011

The winner of the NBIC Young Investigator Award 2011 is Dr. Yang Li of the Bioinformatics Centre (Groningen Institute Biomolecular Sciences & Biotechnology, GBB). She is awarded with a cash prize of 2.500 euros funded by NBIC BioRange and BioWise programmes. The award ceremony took place during the NBIC Conference (April 20th, 2011) and included a honorary lecture by the recipient of the award.

Yang Li has received the NBIC Young Investigator Award 2011 for her PhD research. Her PhD thesis shows a beautiful mix of bioinformatics method development and biological application, and as such the work is squarely positioned in mainstream bioinformatics, showing the essentiality of the field.

The jury was further impressed by the novel methodological developments and innovation in Li's work, while her work is also highly interdisciplinary in that she has closely collaborated with biomedical experts
