Dr. Chennubhotla receives mentoring award

ChennubhotlaPlease join us in congratulating Dr. Chakra Chennubhotla on being selected to receive a Medical Student Research Mentoring Merit Award. This award is presented to a Scholarly Project (SP) mentor of a graduating Pitt Med student in recognition for outstanding mentoring over the course of the SP.

It is certainly true that lotteries attract mostly older people and those whose resources are limited. In light of the very high revenues from lotteries, those who defend the state monopoly by speaking out against competition in this area would find it difficult to justify their position. However, as far as casinos are concerned, the important point is that even if players are exploited, they are no worse off for it. In fact, avid casino-goers are by no means desperate and gambling-obsessed people dependent on social benefits. In many ways they pin up (unlike lottery fans) outperform the average American. A recent study in this area found that “the average age of casino-goers is in line with the national average” (about 48 years old), but they are higher in education, i.e. most likely with incomplete or even completed higher education. Moreover, the average family income of casino players is 28% higher than the average income of a U.S. citizen[20]. Details can be found in Table 1.

The award will be presented at Scholar’s Day on Wednesday, April 2nd at the University Club.

Dr. Bahar receives 2014 Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Award

Dr. Ivet Bahar, Distinguished Professor and John K. Vries Chair of Computational and Systems Biology, was awarded the 2014 Chancellor’s Distinguished Research award in the Senior Scholar category, which honors faculty members who have an outstanding and continuing record of research and scholarly activity. Other professors awarded in the Senior Scholar category include: Marcus Rediker, Distinguished Professor of Atlantic History and  Andrew Schwartz, Professor of Neurobiology.

Some of her many accomplishments include:

  • Hong Kong-Tokyo March 2013 484Her pioneering work on the development of elastic network models and multiscale computational methods which helped gain a mechanistic understanding of protein dynamics and allostery
  • Establishment of the National Center for Multiscale Modeling of Biological Systems (MMBioS) in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon U, Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, in 2012, with focus on (neuro)signaling and regulation events at the CNS
  • The establishment of the Department of Computational & Systems Biology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2010, succeeding the Department of  Computational Biology in 2004 and the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics in 2001.
  • Co-founding the Joint Carnegie Mellon – University of Pittsburgh Ph.D. Program in Computational Biology in 2005, one of ten national HHMI-NIBIB Interfaces Initiative Awardees.
  • Election to European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) membership in 2000
  • Authoring more than 230 publications in scientific journals and receiving more than 9,000 citations (H-index: 52) [as of February 2014]

Dr. Bahar’s current research focuses on: biomolecular systems dynamics; evolution of proteins’ sequence, structure, dynamics and function; elastic network models for protein-protein interactions, supramolecular machinery and allostery; and computer-aided drug discovery.

Join us in congratulating Dr. Bahar for this great achievement!
