On October 1, 2014, Bill Gates visited Cornell to dedicate the Bill and Melinda Gates Hall—the home of The Faculty of Computing and Information Science, and while he was on campus three BTI professors met Bill Gates and his team and presented the progress of their Gates-funded projects. Zhangjun Fei presented an update of the Sweetpotato project in Sub-saharan Africa, Lukas Mueller presented on a number of bioinformatics and database collaborations, and David Stern was part of a round table discussion about biotech communication challenges and opportunities.
