Two MSI Principal Investigators, Regents Professor Donald Truhlar, (Chemistry, MSI Fellow), and Professor David Kohlstedt (Geology and Geophysics) have been awarded membership in the National Academy of Sciences. This is one of the highest honors U.S. scientists can receive, and is given in recognition of excellence in scientific research. More information from the Institute of Technology blog.
Attendees at the Amantes de la Ciencia event at the Science Museum in St. Paul got to see how researchers use MSI’s computers to create pictures of molecules. Mr. Yectli Huerta, a Unix Systems Administrator on MSI’s Systems and Operations Staff, showed students three-dimensional visualizations of molecules. Other participants included Dr. Carlos Sosa, an IBM employee who works with MSI, and MSI Principal Investigator Professor Lynda Ellis, Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology.
