Women make Computational Chemistry 

To inspire, motivate and support young women in computational and theoretical chemistry


We are proud and excited to have organised the “Women make COMP” symposium at the 2019 Fall National Meeting in San Diego. The symposium will be dedicated to graduate students and post-docs, who will receive direct mentorship from renowned women PIs, such mentoring the next generation of women in computational chemistry. Read more on the ACS Computers in Chemistry website.

2019 summer coding camp @the Palermo lab! 

During all summer, our lab gives hands-on session on computational  chemistry & biophysics to high school students and teachers. We are hosting high school students from the Riverside Unified High School District and the Scripps College Claremont which is an undergraduate college educating young high school women to engage in college education in the greater Los Angeles area and in the Inland Empire. 


The young participants of our “coding camp” are learning the basics of Linux use and programming applied to biomolecular simulations. They are also learn the basics of Python and other programming languages and they will get experience with the basic set-up and analysis of molecular simulations.
