Rafa Irizarry, PhD, Professor of Biostatistics at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, has been elected a 2020 International Society of Computational Biology Fellow.
“The ISCB Fellows program was created to honor members who have distinguished themselves through outstanding contributions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics. Begun in 2009, 2020 marks the 11th anniversary of the program. In early December of each year, ISCB has sought Fellow’s nominations from our members, with eligibility restrictions based on selection criteria focused most heavily on the significance of scientific contributions.
Dr. Irizarry was selected for his pioneering work in expression analysis and development of statistical methods for expression analysis, which are some of the most impactful in the entire field.”
