MSBIC student Jing Li selected as 2014 James R. Swartz Entrepreneurial Fellow

Jing LiJing Li is one of 10 CMU students in Carnegie Mellon selected for this fellowship, which fast-tracks the careers of selected graduate students who are passionate about entrepreneurship in the technology arena. The program will help develop their potential and leadership skills through hands-on experiences, networking, mentoring and courses in entrepreneurship. Jing will receive a summer internship at a top-tier venture-backed startup, travel stipend for two treks to Silicon Valley and mentoring by CIE faculty and staff, venture capitalists, and C-level executives in high-tech companies in California's Silicon Valley.

Roeder leads study that finds genetic risk for autism stems mostly from common genes

Kathryn RoederLane Center and Statistics Professor Kathryn Roeder has led an international team of researchers who discovered that most of the genetic risk for autism comes from versions of genes that are common in the population rather than from rare variants or spontaneous glitches. Read more...

Ray and Stephanie Lane Center for Computational Biology

The Lane Center for Computational Biology at Carnegie Mellon University seeks to realize the potential of machine learning for expanding our understanding of complex biological systems. A primary goal of the center is to develop computational tools that will enable automated creation of detailed, predictive models of biological processes, including automated experiment design and data acquisition. We anticipate that these efforts will not only lead to deep biological knowledge but also to tools for individualized diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other diseases. The Lane Center builds on the strong history of computational and interdisciplinary research at Carnegie Mellon.
