Jason Ernst wins award from National Science Foundation

Jason Ernst, an assistant professor in the department of biological chemistry at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and in the computer science department at UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, has received a prestigious National Science Foundation Award that recognizes outstanding junior faculty.
Ernst won the foundation's CAREER Award for "expanding the dimensions of computational epigenomic modeling and analysis." This award spotlights early-career faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholar through research, education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.
Ernst conducts research in computational biology and bioinformatics, developing and applying computational methods to better analyze and model high-throughput experimental data in order to address problems related to epigenomics and gene regulation.
