For his paper, “Leveraging functional annotation data in trans-ethinic fine-mapping studies”, current Bioinformatics Ph.D. student Gleb Kichaev was chosen as a recipient of the Cotterman Award at the 2016  American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) Annual Meeting, held October 18-22 in Vancouver, Canada.

Each September, the editorial board of The American Journal of Human Genetics selects two articles published in the journal in the previous year that best represent outstanding scientific contributions to the field of human genetics. Two Cotterman Awards are given annually, with a monetary award of $1,000 and a plaque being presented to the recipients.  These top two papers must be published in the Journal during the previous year on which the first author was either a pre- or post- doctoral trainee and an ASHG member.

Congratulations Gleb!
