Assistant Professor Michael Shirts was awarded an NSF CAREER award. The highly competitive award is the agency’s most prestigious honor in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholar. The award will fund new work on understanding the thermodynamics of molecular crystalline materials, especially pharmaceutical crystals, using advanced atomistic simulation methods, in order to allow these drugs to be formulated and processed more safely, easily and cheaply. For more information about the award and research in Prof. Shirts’s group, see the U.Va. news article.
