Dennis Bray, a computational cell biologist from the University of Cambridge, has been named the recipient of the Royal Society and Académie des Sciences Microsoft European Science award. The €250,000 ($321,000) award, sponsored by Microsoft Research, is designed “to recognize and reward scientists working in Europe who have made a major contribution to the advancement of science through the use of computational methods,” according to the Royal Society. Bray was selected for the award for his research on computer simulations of bacterial chemotaxis.
 

Bray said in a statement that he will use the funding to set up a computational facility for the Department of Physiology, Development, and Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge.
