Lane Fellow Awarded Otto Hahn Medal


Lane Fellow Marcel Schulz won a 2010 Otto Hahn medal, awarded by the Max Planck Society to young scientists and researchers for outstanding scientific achievement.  Marcel received the medal for his Ph.D. thesis entitled “Data structures and algorithms for analysis of alternative splicing with RNA-seq data.”  Only 26 medals were awarded this year, representing the top 3% of all Ph.D students from 2010 among the nearly eighty Max Planck Institutes.  Marcel joined the Lane Center in September 2010 and is working with Prof. Ziv Bar-Joseph on dynamic regulatory networks integrating post-transcriptional regulation.
