Nagan Research Lab
Dr. Maria Nagan
Welcome to Dr. Nagan's research page!
Students in the Nagan lab are all undergraduate and high school students.
The Nagan lab employs computational methods to examine RNA structure and protein recognition of RNA. We make movies on the computer, collecting structures of molecules throughout time, and then use physical chemistry and mathematical principles to extract meaning out of the data. To join the group, please read more about the Nagan lab projects and then email Dr. Nagan to see about availability of spots.
Dr. Nagan is director of two larger undergraduate research programs at Stony Brook University.

To organize a symposium at the ACS Meeting, please see these guidelines and submit your proposal on the form.
Dr. Nagan's lab coordinates user support and tutorials. If you have ideas please contact Dr. Nagan. We welcome contributions from the community.
Dr. Nagan has spent the majority of her career at primarily undergraduate institutions and continues to be committed to involving undergraduate students in research. The Mercury Consortium has been funded by NSF for over 20 years. For articles related to the consortium see:
Our annual conference is open to all undergraduates conducting computational chemistry research. It is usually held in late July and serves as a friendly, summative experience for undergraduates to give poster presentations. As well, keynote speakers include renowned faculty in computational chemistry, scientists from industry and national labs.
