The International Society of Computational Biology (ISCB) will award Professor David Eisenberg with the Senior Scientist Accomplishment Award for his contributions to the field of computational biology through research, education, and service.

The award will be presented at the 21st Annual Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology Conference, which takes place with the 12th European Conference on Computational Biology (ISMB/ECCB 2013) in Berlin, Germany on July 19-23, 2013.

As part of the conference, Eisenberg will deliver a keynote address, discussing his recent work in “protein interactions by X-ray crystallography, bioinformatics, and biochemistry, with an emphasis on amyloid-forming proteins."

ISCB, formed in 1997, is a global community of over 3000 scientists committed to increasing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation. The ISCB hosts annual meetings, including the ISMB, the world's largest bioinformatics conference. More information can be found here.
