A Stony Brook Medicine research team is competing against Weill Cornell Medicine in STAT Madness, a bracket-style contest to find the best innovation in science and medicine from the top research institutions in the country.
Each team submitted innovative research that was published in a peer-reviewed journal last year, and there are now 32 teams left in the competition.
SBU’s competing team is from the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology — Alberto Perez, Joseph A. Morrone, Emiliano Brini, and Ken A. Dill — authored “Blind protein structure prediction using accelerated free-energy simulations,” which was published in the November 11, 2016, edition of the AAAS publication, Science Advances. This team is developing a new method for predicting the structure of proteins.
Help SBU make it to the final four of science!
Voting rounds will be held weekly until there is a winner: the people’s champion will be determined by your votes, and STAT journalists will pick their own winner as well. Both will be announced on April 3.
