INFORMS Wagner Prize: Vaccine and gene match, vaccine effectiveness to CDC, GA Tech, Emory

The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS®), the leading professional association in analytics and operations research, today announced that the winner of the Daniel H. Wagner Prize is a team comprising researchers from the CDC, Georgia Tech, and Emory University for creating a model that uses genetic signatures to predict the efficacy of vaccines on an individual by individual basis. The winner of the INFORMS Daniel H. Wagner Prize competition was named on Tuesday, November 3 at the 2015 INFORMS Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. The competition is judged by CPMS, the association’s practice section. Over 5,500 academics and practitioners attended the conference. Machine Learning Framework for Predicting Vaccine Immunogenicity, is by Eva K. Lee, Fan Yuan, Georgia University of Technology; Bali Pulendran, Helder Nakaya, Emory University; and…
