Students, Faculty Head Back to School, but a Few will be Staying On

August 26, 2017

Their posters rolled up after a lively Aug. 3 presentation session, nearly all of the students and guest faculty working in the Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences area are now back home, preparing for the new school year. But not all of them. Rafael Zamora and Tom Corcoran from Hood College in Maryland have had their stays extended as they are applying deep learning techniques to classifying specific protein structures that could lead to more effective drugs for fighting cancer. Both Zamora and… Read More »
