Dr Daniel Nichol (2013, Computer Science) has won the 2019 Reinhart-Heinrich Doctoral Thesis Award from the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ESMTB). The award celebrates the best doctoral thesis published in this field during 2018.
Daniel’s thesis examined drug resistance through Computational Models of the Genotype–Phenotype Mapping. As part of the award, a summary of Daniel’s thesis will be published as a lead article in European Communications in Mathematical and Theoretical Biology and he has been invited to give a lecture at the next ESMTB conference. He will receive the award at a ceremony in Heidelberg, Germany, in 2020.
The ESMTB award committee praised Daniel’s thesis saying “[it] is likely to become a landmark in an issue of critical significance…The thesis gave rise to three papers already published in highly prestigious journals and to a few more papers under publication.”
