The FOMMS Medal honors "profound and lasting contributions by one or more individuals to the development of computational methods and their application to the field of molecular-based modeling and simulation."
Prof. Carol Hall has been named the winner of the FOMMS Medal for 2015 in recognition of her accomplishments in molecular theory as well as molecular simulation. She will give the final lecture at the Foundations of Molecular Modeling and Simulation Conference in July 2015.
Prof. Hall is the Camille Dreyfus Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University. She has won numerous awards, served as the AIChE Institute Lecturer in 2007, and is a member of the National Academy of Engineering. She has been at the forefront of several important research areas related to computation and theory, including the modeling of phase separation in colloidal suspensions, modeling and equations of state for chain molecules, and coarse-grained simulations of protein aggregation.
Winners of the FOMMS Medal receive a medal, an honorarium, full meeting expenses and give the last lecture of the conference right before the banquet.
