Congratulations to Kathleen Carter who defended her Ph.D. dissertation today. Best wishes to Kathleen for success in her future career!
Our group was among the 62 recipients of INCITE Awards from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. The projects originate in national laboratories, academia, and industry, and encompass a remarkable range of scientific inquiry. Ours was among 8 projects in the areas of Biological Sciences/Biophysics awarded nationwide. Here are the 2019INCITEAnnouncement and the […]
Ivaylo received a new INCITE Award from the DOE Office of Science. The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program accelerates scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding, on a competitive basis, time on the world’s fastest supercomputers to researchers with large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address “grand challenges” in science […]
Group members recently traveled to Augusta, GA to present at the 2018 Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society. Many thanks to all who presented! (Chunli Yan, Ashutosh Shandilya, Tom Dodd, Kurt Martin and Zhenyu Wang) At the meeting Ivaylo gave two invited talks: Emerging unified description of transcription initiation from cryo-EM and integrative computational […]
