The two Stony Brook University research projects competing in the annual STAT Madness Competition have advanced to Round 2 and need your votes to win! STAT Madness is a bracket-style tournament to find the best innovations in science and medicine.
In Round 1, Stony Brook’s “Unraveling Bacterial Structure,” a study by David Thanassi, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, beat NYU; and “COVID Orphans,” research by Rachel Kidman, Family, Population and Preventive Medicine and Program in Public Health, beat the University of Pennsylvania.
Now in Round 2, Thanassi’s research is up against Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s “ Stem Cells as Homing Missiles,” and Kidman’s research must beat the Allen Institute’s ”Mapping the Brain.” The study that receives the most votes in the head-to-head competition moves to the next round.
