Molecular Simulation Summer School Kickoff

The first day of the 2nd Annual Molecular Simulation Summer School is is kicking off today.

Moraine Lake in Banff National Park

We have approximately 30 students from around Canada, plus 30 local students from Calgary. We've brought in six external speakers, in addition to a few locals:

  • Qiang Cui (UW Madison) QM/MM Methods

  • Jeff Klauda (Maryland) Lipid simulations and force fields

  • Siewert-Jan Marrink (Groningen) Coarse grained models of membranes

  • Guillaum Lamoureux (Concordia) Polarizable force fields

  • José Faraldo-Gomez (NIH) Free energy landscapes and most probable paths

  • Justin MacCallum (Calgary) Combining simulation with experimental data

  • Wonpil-Im (Kansas) Modeling and simulation using CHARMM-GUI

  • Sergei Noskov (Calgary) Enhanced sampling of membrane transporters

  • Peter Tieleman (Calgary) Molecular simulations and  Compute Canada

After two days of lectures, we then have 2.5 days of hands-on workshops, plus a trip to Banff.
