BigInsight arrived in the top 30% in the Dream Challenge 2016

A team from Oslo and Cambridge, lead by professors Eivind Hovig, Sylvia Richardson and Manuela Zucknick, participated to the international Dream Challenge ( 73 teams completed the challenge, where we had to predict the drug synergy of pair compounds on cancer cell lines. We arrived 25th! Given that this was the first time we participated to such an international competition, and that we started two months later than others, we are very satisfied.  And nice to notice that we came before the Oxford University (Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics) team. The positive experience will be repeated. Special thanks to Manuela Zucknick, Kristoffer Hellton, Alvaro Kohn Loque, Sigve Nakken for their fantastic work.
