Mark Zuckerberg, Sergey Brin, Yuri Milner Create $33 Million Breakthrough Prize For Medical Research Three of Silicon Valley's most high-profile entrepreneurs are launching a new Foundation with designs on the Nobel Prizes. The Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences Foundation is to reward life-saving research with 11 annual awards, each with an individual reward of $3 million. Google's Sergey Brin and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg have teamed up with technology investor Yuri Milner, whose eponymous awards were set up last year to award breakthroughs in fundamental physics, to reward medical breakthroughs. "Young people will hopefully get the message that not only the careers in sports or entertainment can get a public recognition," Milner said. Master of Science Computer Science Lead Faculty: Dr. Pradip Peter Dey The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) program at National University provides students with a solid foundation, in the fundamental knowledge and skills of software engineering, database theory and design and cloud computing, exposing them to best practice methodologies using a variety of tools and techniques required for solving real world problems and to be of immediate benefit to the computing industry. National University s MSCS program not only prepares students in the theoretical and practical aspects of solving complex computing problems but also it develops other essential communication skills. MSCS graduates are able to clearly discuss issues, trends, and solutions with both technical and non-technical audiences.
