The National Institutes of Health (NIH) bestowed the honor of asking Professor Bonnie Berger to give the annual Margaret Pittman Lecture as part of the Institutes’ Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series. The lecture is presented annually by a researcher dedicated to advancing and improving the careers of female scientists.
Berger, a principal investigator at CSAIL where she heads the Computation and Biology Group and is a member of the Theory of Computation Group, spoke on "Computational Biology in the 21st Century: Making Sense out of Massive Data.”
According to the NIH, “Since 1994 when this annual lecture began, every speaker has exemplified the intelligence, scientific excellence and drive that made Margaret Pittman a leader as the first female laboratory chief at NIH.”
