Collaborators, Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS) research group (within Computing Science) and openlab at CERN reveal the winner of an international coding contest challenge. The challenge was available only to students who were required to optimize code used to simulate brain development. In particular, the software focuses on simulating the development of a normal and diseased brain, in order to identify the causes and potential treatments for neurodevelopmental brain disorders, such as epilepsy, autism, and schizophrenia. This code is part of an existing CERN openlab research project, in collaboration with ICOS, which uses a "parallel programming" framework to help accelerate research among multiple scientists. Read more about the prize at the USA Today website.
