Award Description: The award was made to speed up production of a complete polarizable force field for proteins. This will permit more accurate calculations of protein structures and protein-ligand binding energies. The results are expected to be of positive value in biomedical research in general and anti-cancer studies in particular. For example, application of the resulting force field should facilitate discovery of new potent medical drugs. One new postdoctoral-level specialist will be hired with this funding, and the amount of effort dedicated to this project by the Principal Investigator will increase by 7.5% of his overall working time during the academic year.
Project Description: Due to the award start date of 09/30/09, there are no quarterly activites this quarter.
