Chemist Awarded $1.1 Million NIH Grant to Model “Long-Time” Molecular Movements

A University of Texas at Austin chemist has received a $1.1 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to expand research modeling “long-time” biological processes down to the last atom. These simulations will model biological processes in atomic detail over wide ranges of time, from milliseconds to hours, allowing researchers to observe the fine…   » Continue Reading

New Molecule Has Potential to Help Treat Genetic Diseases and HIV

Chemists at The University of Texas at Austin have created a molecule that's so good at tangling itself inside the double helix of a DNA sequence that it can stay there for up to 16 days before the DNA liberates itself, much longer than any other molecule reported.
