Will Noid, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, has been chosen to receive a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. CAREER is a Foundation-wide activity that "offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations."

The Noid group combines powerful theories from statistical mechanics with modern computational methods to investigate protein structure, dynamics, and interactions. This highly interdisciplinary work evolves at the exciting interface of chemistry, biology, physics, computer science, and applied mathematics. Moreover, our work promises fruitful collaboration with experimentalists in physical and biological chemistry.
