The complex life cycle of the parasite that causes malaria has made it a difficult foe to beat. But new insights on how the parasite is transmitted from humans to the mosquitoes that spread malaria may lead to new ways to control this deadly disease.
Dr. Olivier Elemento, a renowned computational biologist and leader in the field of computational genomics and biomedicine, has been named director of the Caryl and Israel Englander Institute for Precision Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine.
Seven winners have been selected for the third round of the Daedalus Fund for Innovation awards, an innovative Weill Cornell Medicine program that helps advance promising applied and translational research projects and emerging technologies that have commercial potential.
Computational biologist Dr. Olivier Elemento was just 6 years old when he received his first microscope and computer. Now he is harnessing the power of both to spot patterns and trends in cancer that could help doctors treat the disease -- and perhaps even find a cure.
