A warm welcome to Oneil Mahoney and Bryant Tufino to ICompute. Oneil will study the estrogenic potential of toxins binding to the estrogen receptor under the guidance of Prof. Lauren Wickstrom at CUNY BMCC. Bryant is studying a novel class of antibiotics containing gold with Prof. Maria Contel here at the Department of Chemistry at Brooklyn College.


The Interdisciplinary Computation & Modeling research Program for Undergraduate students (ICoMPUte) seeks to promote molecular modeling as a research tool in Chemistry and related fields. The program normally lasts two semesters, during which students work in interdisciplinary teams on projects involving wet lab experiments as well as molecular simulations, computer code development, and chemical physics theory & models.

The program is managed by the Department of Chemistry at Brooklyn College. A small stipend is provided to qualified students. The program is supported by a generous grant from the National Science Foundation.

Students in laboratory sciences: Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, and Physics, as well as Math, Computer Science and Engineering are encouraged to apply. Students interested in chemistry laboratory work are expected to have completed Organic Chemistry II laboratory. Applications from CUNY students not at Brooklyn College are encouraged.

For further questions and eligibility criteria please contact Prof. Emilio Gallicchio, egallicchio@brooklyn.cuny.edu.
