RPI gets NIH grant for cheminformatics: NIH award is largest of six awarded to universities across the country
[Drug Discovery] Six universities nationwide can claim the honor of having been awarded grants by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the development of exploratory centers for cheminformatics research. But with only $4 million earmarked by NIH in fiscal year 2005 for this program, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is clearly the leader with its nearly $1 million award. (11-22-2005)

Rensselaer Awarded NIH Grant To Support Cheminformatics Research
[RPI News] Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has been selected as one of six universities nationwide to be awarded a two-year, nearly $1 million planning grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that will provide a foundation for the development of a center for cheminformatics research. The Rensselaer Exploratory Center for Cheminformatics Research (RECCR) will bring together an interdisciplinary research team to seek improved understanding of the relationships between chemical structure and function for use in biotechnology applications.

Rensselaer Researchers Develop Approach That Predicts Protein Separation Behavior
[RPI News] Applying math and computers to the drug discovery process, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a method to predict protein separation behavior directly from protein structure. This new multi-scale protein modeling approach may reduce the time it takes to bring pharmaceuticals to market and may have significant implications for an array of biotechnology applications, including bioprocessing, drug discovery, and proteomics, the study of protein structure and function.
