DBMI DREAM Team Delivers Silver!
Under the mentorship of Associate Professor Xinghua Lu, DBMI Postdocs Chunhai Cai and Songjian Lu and PhD candidates Hatice Osmanbeyoglu and Lujia Chen placed *second* in the international DREAM Breast Challenge to develop computational models that accurately predict prognosis of individual patients from the METABRIC genome-wide molecular profiling data including gene expression and copy number profile. More than 200individuals organized into around 50 teams submitted over 1000 models. Our own DBMI team came in second, and is currently preparing an invited presentation at the DREAM conference and a future publication. DBMI continues to be at the intersection of informatics and personalized medicine. Congratulations to the team on this fine accomplishment.
