The College of Sciences-led team that developed the Covid-19 testing program for Georgia Tech — along with a pair of Chemistry faculty leading a new diversity initiative, excellence in teaching — are honored with Institute Research Awards for 2020-2021.
The team's interactive map shows the risk level of attending an event, given the event size and location (assuming 10:1 ascertainment bias). The risk level is the estimated chance (0-100%) that at least one Covid-19 positive individual will be present.
Professors in the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Physics capture top annual honors from the Georgia Tech chapter of Sigma Xi scientific research society.
