Diana Negoescu '09 and Peter Frazier *09 have received honorable mention in the first 'Doing Good with Good OR' competition sponsored by Informs. The competition recognizes students or student groups whose projects are likely to have a significant impact on society through the application of operations research methods. Their project addressed the problem of sequencing the testing of different compounds in the search for drugs to effectively treat Ewing's Sarcoma.
