Congratulations to Prof. Andrés Cisneros (PI-Chemistry) and Co-PI's Profs. Oliviero Andreussi (Physics), Thomas Cundari (Chemistry), Jincheng Du (Materials Science) and Hao Yan (Chemistry), for receiving a National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation (NSF-MRI) grant to upgrade the high-performance computing system housed in the Chemistry Building and affiliated with the Center for Advanced Scientific Computing and Modeling (CASCaM).
CASCaM researchers span multiple departments and colleges at UNT and are united by their interest in developing and applying computational tools to solve leading-edge problems in chemical, biomolecular, and material-related research. CASCaM has a strong emphasis on promoting research and research training of early-career scientists, including Ph.D., undergraduate, and high school students, via outstanding faculty mentorship and access to world-class resources. This new award is the latest in a serious of four major grants from the NSF that have helped to grow and maintain this this HPC system, which serves as a major research asset to UNT. It will provide a significant boost to the capabilities of CASCaM-affiliated researchers at UNT.
