Guilain Luchini, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, was awarded funds to attend the Chemical Society Meeting that will be held August 24-29 in San Diego, CA to present his research in applying often-overlooked corrections to DFT frequency calculations in an automated fashion.

Roi Rutenberg, Chemistry Department at Stanford University, Stanford, CA, was awarded funds for travel to visit the University of Illinois, Chicago in order to model molecular dynamic (MD) simulations at the Kral group as part of his research related to retrieving information about pEtN cellulose’s chemical structure as an individual compound, as well as a partner in future chemical reactions.

Monika Szabo, Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University, Victoria, Australia, was awarded funds for travel to attend two conferences at which she will present her research on drugs for myelofibrosis. The conferences are: EFMC-ASMC’19 International Symposium on Advances in Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry – Athens Greece; 1st-5th September 2019, and the 20th SCI/RSC Medicinal Chemistry Symposium-Cambridge UK; 8th-11th September, 2019.

Applications Invited for CSA Trust Grants for 2019 – 19th April, 2019 Deadline

The Grant Program was created to provide funding for the career development of young researchers who have demonstrated excellence in their education, research or development activities that are related to the systems and methods used to store, process and retrieve information about chemical structures, reactions and compounds. Applicant(s), age 35 or younger, who have demonstrated excellence in their chemical information related research and who are developing careers that have the potential to have a positive impact on the utility of chemical information relevant to chemical structures, reactions and compounds, are invited to submit applications.  Application deadline for the 2019 Grant is 19th April 2019.
