Khoury GS4 Takes Two Top Honors at Princeton Research Symposium
At the 2013 Princeton Research Symposium (PRS), held on October 20 on campus, fourth-year CBE Ph.D. student George Khoury was awarded 1st Prize in the Poster Competition, and 2nd prize in the Oral Research Talks. PRS is an annual interdisciplinary event, first launched in 2006, where Princeton graduate students and post-doctoral researchers present a diverse body of work to the University community, alumni, and general public. George's thesis work, advised by Professor Christodoulos Floudas, focuses on the development of new optimization-driven computational tools for modified amino acids and their application to designing new peptide-based therapeutics.
