Troy Wymore, Ph.D. is a computational chemist with research interests in enzyme mechanisms and protein structure prediction. He received a BS in chemistry from the University of Missouri in 1993 and his Ph.D. in 1999, studying peptide-lipid interactions through molecular dynamics simulations and 2D NMR. He joined the staff at the PSC in 1999 and is also a member of the Training Faculty for the Joint CMU-Pitt Ph.D. program in Computational Biology.
Adam C. Marko earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005. His research is focused on improving comparative protein modeling methods from distantly related templates and implementing these methods on PSC's supercomputing platforms. He is also working to make these and other protein model building tools accessible through the web.
Adam Kraut is an undergraduate at the University of Pittsburgh studying Biology and Information Science. He is developing new algorithms to more efficiently predict accurate protein structures from distantly related templates. He is working to make these and other protein model building tools accessible through the web.
Shawn Brown received his Ph.D. from the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry at the University of Georgia in Theoretical Chemistry after obtaining a B.S. in Chemistry from Bethany College. Shawn is experienced in the application and development of quantum chemistry software; most of his work has been on improving the efficiency of density functional theory.
Charles L. Brooks III, Ph.D.received his B.Sc. degrees in Chemistry and Physics from Alma College. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 1982. Dr. Brooks was a post-doctoral associate at Harvard University from 1982 to 1985 with Martin Karplus. He is currently at the Scripps Research Institute where he directs research in the areas of protein folding, multi-scale modelling, drug design and discovery, and enzyme catalysis.
