The Laboratory for Biomolecular Simulation Research made a big impact at the recent 255th American Chemical Society National Meeting in New Orleans, LA (Mar. 18-22, 2018). Special highlights include:

  • A special session in the BIOL Division on "RNA Structure and Function" that focused on the predictive understanding of RNA enzymes featured talks by an interdisciplinary research team involving the labs of Phil Bevilacqua (Penn. State), Michael Harris (U. Florida), Joseph Piccirilli (U. Chicago) and anchored by the lab of Darrin York (Rutgers).
  • LBSR research faculty Tai-Sung Lee and David Cerutti received prestigious Nvidia GPU Computing Awards for their pioneering efforts to develop exceptional high performance simulation tools on graphical processing units.
  • In collaboration with the Rutgers Cyberlearning Innovation and Research Center (CIRC) and the Purdue Institute for Drug Discovery, COMP division poster presentations were enhanced by augmented and virtual reality elements that were highlighted in C&EN News Live Facebook Event.
  • Special highlights in Chemistry Education Research were made by graduate student Emily Atieh who made both oral and poster presentations at the meeting.
