  • Beratan and Therien Leading a New NSF Center for Chemical Innovation

    The National Science Foundation is funding the new Center for Synthesizing Quantum Coherence (CSQC) as a Phase I Center for Chemical Innovation. Led by Duke, and featuring distinguished chemists at Northwestern University, University of California – Berkeley, and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, the Center aims to unmask the coherent quantum mechanical flow of electronic excited states and of charges, along with their coherent spin-spin interactions, in precisely tailored nanostructures and molecules.  In the longer term, discoveries of the Center will contribute to realizing materi

  • Triangle Molecular Simulation Society Receives Grant

    The Office of the Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies has awarded a Duke Support for Interdisciplinary Graduate Networks (D-SIGN) grant to the Triangle Molecular Simulation Society! Professor David Beratan will lead three chemists and a physicist in kickstarting an interdisciplinary and cross-school network of students, researchers, enthusiasts, and members of industry interested in the methods and applications of molecular simulation. This network will eventually nurture research collaboration, support, and community within the Triangle area.

  • Chemists Host Triangle Soft Matter Workshop

    Professors Stephen Craig and Michael Rubinstein hosted the annual Triangle Soft Matter Workshop in May. The workshop rotates among Triangle Universities and the team effort has helped establish the Research Triangle region of North Carolina as a global center for soft matter research.

  • Three Faculty Receive Royal Society of Chemistry Awards!

    David Beratan, Tuan Vo-Dinh & Michael Rubinstein have received Royal Society of Chemistry Awards in recognition of their originality and impact in chemical research. Professor Beratan, a Duke alumnus, has received the Bourke Award for developing tunneling pathway and flickering resonance theories of biological electron transfer.
