Catlett and Buan -- Best Paper Award at ACM International Conference on Nanoscale
- Students and faculty from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering received the best paper award during the ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication. The paper, "End-to-End Molecular Communication Channels in Cell Metabolism: An Information Theoretic Study," was written by graduate students Zahmeeth Sakkaff, Mikaela Cashman and J. L. Callett, along with faculty Massimilian Pierobon, Myra Cohen, Nicole Buan and Christine Kelly. The paper was the result of an interdisciplinary, National Science Foundation-funded research project between biochemistry and mathematics departments. A portion of the research came from Sakkaff's master's thesis, which was named the Department of Computer Science and Engineering's 2017 Outstanding Master's Thesis Award. Learn more about this honor.
