UC San Diego bioengineering professor trey ideker wins 2009 Overton Prize
Date:3/13/2009

University of California, San Diego bioengineering professor Trey Idekera network and systems biology pioneerhas won the International Society for Computational Biology's Overton Prize. The Overton prize is awarded each year to an early-to-mid-career scientist who has already made a significant contribution to the field of computational biology.

Trey Ideker is an Associate Professor of Bioengineering at UC San Diego's Jacobs School of Engineering, Adjunct Professor of Computer Science, and member of the Moores UCSD Cancer Center. He is a pioneer in using genome-scale measurements to construct network models of cellular processes and disease. His recent research activities include development of software and algorithms for protein network analysis, network-level comparison of pathogens, and genome-scale models of the response to DNA-damaging agents.

"Receiving this award is a wonderful honor and helps to confirm that the work we have been doing for the past several years has been useful to people," said Ideker. "This award also provides great recognition to UC San Diego which has fantastic bioinformatics programs both at the undergraduate and graduate level. I could never have done it without the help of some really first-rate bioinformatics and bioengineering graduate students," said Ideker.

Ideker is on the faculty of the Jacobs School of Engineering's Department of Bioengineering, which ranks 2nd in the nation for biomedical engineering, according to the latest US News rankings. The bioengineering department has ranked among the top five programs in the nation every year for the past decade.
