FIU researchers think of a way to speed up a vaccine for COVID-19. Now there’s a $1M grant.

Machine-learning algorithms that work with supercomputers to analyze and understand data in speedy time could hold the key to finding cures for many diseases — including the novel coronavirus.

That’s what Florida International University researcher Fahad Saeed and his colleagues have been developing.

On Wednesday, their work was recognized by the National Institutes of Health with a three-year, $1 million grant to help FIU researchers design and develop machine-learning algorithms that allow biologists to make sense of proteomics — the large-scale study of proteins.
