The Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC) is seeking a highly motivated individual to join the core staff team. The successful candidate will be responsible for supporting center activities relating to computational biology.
Sahika Inal, KAUST associate professor of Bioscience and principal investigator of the Organic Bioelectronics Laboratory Lab, joined the Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC) on July 1, 2021. In CBRC, Sahika will work on designing electronic devices that can efficiently communicate with biological systems.
Tiny drops that resemble an extracellular matrix can be used to culture cells for delivery into the human body.
An approach that reduces the computational power required to analyze huge amounts of DNA data for identifying new microbes and their proteins could be used for manufacturing anything from new antibiotics to plastic-degrading enzymes.
KAUST and CBRC founding member Aleksandar Radovanovic (Senior Computational Scientist) has retired from KAUST after 12 years of dedicated service to the center.
Aryam Alotaibi a SRSI student at CBRC wins the top paper Award titled "Computational method to predict drug-disease associations using machine learning and graph embedding."
3D models of bone formation provide a tool for tissue engineering, biomedical research and drug testing.
The annual IEEE Computer Society Global Student Challenge provides an avenue for students worldwide to create innovative solutions to big data problems. This year’s competition, IEEE CS GSC 2021, encourages each individual or team (max three students) to present solutions to pre-determined problem/issue statement of relevance in CS today.
KAUST scientists have developed a user-friendly COVID-19 mutation tracking system, useful for authorities and scientists to quickly detect variants in their region, allowing them to make speedy policy and public health decisions.
Ocean noise is increasing in prevalence and scale from human sources such as cargo shipping, seismic blasting, active sonar, pile driving and fishing vessels. The extent to which it is changing the character of the ocean soundscape and impacting marine life and their habitats is a largely understudied and unaddressed area.
The foundation of building a successful academic career is generally thought to be the pursuit of excellence through specialization. Of course, the cross-disciplinary quest has its important place, but it's often thought of primarily as the fruitful collaboration between specialized entities or experts in particular fields.
KAUST Ph.D. candidate Mohamed Abdelwaheb Bahloul recently won first place at the IEEE International Multi-Conference on Systems, Signals and Devices 2021 (SSD’21) PhD Students Contest. The contest provided a showcase for students’ original work related to electrical engineering and information technology.
