Chemistry Professor Awarded NSF Grant to Improve Data Science Framework

Dr. Stuart Chalk, a University of North Florida chemistry professor, has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to test and improve upon his data science framework, SciData, which will help make the integration of scientific data more efficient for researchers. The $600,000 NSF grant will focus on linking chemical data to health, pharmacology and toxicology data from a variety of sources and organizing it in a way that both people, as well as computers, can understand and search the data. ..

FSU Researchers Use Artificial Intelligence to Identify, Predict New Chemical Compounds

A team of Florida State University (FSU) researchers is using artificial intelligence to identify which among hundreds of thousands of hypothetical crystal structures can result in the prediction of new chemical compounds. It’s a move that could radically change how chemists identify, test and study potential new compounds for any variety of materials, medicines or other products. ..

Florida Tech Team Develops New Tools for Mapping the Brain

Researchers at Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) have developed the fastest method to date for creating a key molecule used by neuroscientists at Columbia University in mapping brain activity. They also discovered ways to create two new versions of that molecule – a neurotransmitter called glutamate – that will allow researchers to better understand depression, dementia and bipolar disorder.  ..

FSU Professor’s Work to be Conducted at International Space Station

A Florida State University (FSU) professor’s latest experiments will take place far above the Earth when astronauts at the International Space Station begin working with FSU on what’s called a chemical garden.  Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Oliver Steinbock will send materials for experiments to the International Space Station in June aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from SpaceX.  The goal of the project is to grow a chemical garden — inorganic structures that can spring up from metal salts and a silicate solution. ..
