Winners announced in the Elsevier Grand Challenge
Date:4/22/2009

Amsterdam, April 22, 2009 - Elsevier, a leading global healthcare and scientific publisher, has announced the winners of the Elsevier Grand Challenge (www.elseviergrandchallenge.com). The competition, launched in June 2008, invited researchers to prototype tools dealing with the ever-increasing amount of online life sciences information. The winners have been chosen by a distinguished panel of judges (www.elseviergrandchallenge.com/judges.html) to represent the tools thought to be the most innovative and implementable: First place, a cash prize of $35,000, second place, $15,000.

The first and second prize winners were announced at the Experimental Biology (www.eb2009.org/) conference in New Orleans and chosen from four finalist teams. Each of the four Grand Challenge finalists gave a demonstration of their tool and responded to questions from the panel of judges and an audience of life science researchers. They then answered questions from a live online audience of researchers attending virtually via the Elsevier Grand Challenge Q&A webinar. The judges announced the winning entries live on the webinar. Finalists are available for interviews on site at the Experimental Biology conference.

First prize winner: Sean I. O'Donoghue, Lars Jensen, Heiki Horn, Evangelos Pafilis, Michael Kuhn, Nigel P. Brown and Reinhard Schneider, EMBL Germany, for their project "Reflect: Automated Annotation of Scientific Terms"

Second prize winner: Vit Novacek, Tudor Groza and Siegfried Handschuh, DERI, Ireland, for their project CORAALDive into Publications, Bathe in the Knowledge

"I speak for the team when I say that we're all really happy and proud to have received the award," said O'Donoghue of the Reflect team. "The event has been fantastic stimulus to not only my team but all the teams here
