Dr. Alex Dickson has recently been awarded the American Chemical Society (ACS) OpenEye Outstanding Junior Faculty Award. This award is presented to up to four tenure-track junior faculty members in order to provide support for presenting their work at the upcoming ACS National Meeting occurring in San Diego, CA, August 25 - 29. The members will present their work at the poster session for Computer in Chemistry (COMP) Division of the ACS.

Dr. Dickson will be presenting the Weighted Ensemble simulation framework python package (wepy), a tool useful for exploring rough free energy landscapes. Wepy is able to utilize OpenMM, a molecular simulation toolkit utilizing GPU code, multiprocessing parallelization, WExplore and REVO resampling algorithms, and store/take-in WE data sets from the command line.

We would once again like to congratulate Dr. Dickson for receiving the ACS OpenEye Outstanding Junior Faculty Award.
