DSP PhD Student Tan Nguyen Selected as a 2020 Computing Innovation Fellow

DSP PhD student Tan Nguyen has received a prestigious Computing Innovation Postdoctoral Fellowship (CIFellows Program) from the Computing Research Association (CRA).  He plans to work with Professor Stan Osher at UCLA on predicting drug-target binding affinity to study how current drugs work on new targets as a treatment for COVID-19 and future pandemic diseases.  Tan plans to develop a new class of deep learning models that are aware of the structural information of drugs, scalable to large datasets, and generalizable to unseen cases.
