The Human Brain Project has begun

The Human Brain Project has begun

October 14, 2013 - With more than 130 research institutions from Europe and around the world on board and hundreds of scientists in a myriad of fields participating, the Human Brain Project is the most ambitious neuroscience project ever launched. Its goal is to develop methods that will enable a deep understanding of how the human brain operates. The knowledge gained will be a key element in developing new medical and information technologies.IAS-5 will contribute to the Human Brain Project by investigating scenarios in a neuronal cascade by molecular simulations.

Dr. Chao Zhang

Dr. Chao Zhang was awarded with Jülich Excellence-Prize 2013

June 15, 2013 - Dr. Chao Zhang received the Jülich Excellence-Prize 2013. The prize recognizes the exceptional scientific achievements at an early career stage, which exceed the expected standard of good young scientists by far.
In his thesis Chao Zhang provided fundamental contributions to our understanding of proton transport on cell membrane surfaces. He performed one of the largest quantum mechanical simulations in biophysics so far, using the Petaflop-computer JUGENE in Jülich in the framework of a PRACE project. With this, Chao Zhang was able to elucidate a longstanding experimental puzzle, namely how to reconcile strong binding of protons to the cell membrane surface with fast interfacial proton motion. His ab initio simulations have shown unambiguously that some protons are localized at the cell surface. However, protons located in a second interfacial water layer migrate very quickly and yet experience sufficient attractive forces to prevent release to the bulk water.
The prize have been delivered during the annual JuDocs event at the Forschungszentrum Jülich on June 15, 2013.Dr. Chao Zhang was awarded with Jülich Excellence-Prize 2013

Dr. Chao Zhang

Dr. Chao Zhang was awarded with the 2012 Chinese Government Prize for Outstanding Students Abroad

April 3, 2013 - The China Scholarship Council (CSC) awarded our former PhD student Dr. Chao Zhang with the 2012 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Students Abroad. This award was founded by the Chinese government in 2003 with the purpose of rewarding the academic excellence of Chinese students studying overseas without Chinese stipend. Only those with outstanding performance in their PhD studies will be considered by the award selection panel and at most 500 young talents will be granted the award each year all over the world.

Prof. Carloni awarded Distinguished Professor

Prof. Carloni awarded Distinguished Professor

March 4, 2013 - Prof. Paolo Carloni, head of the Computational Biophysics research group at the GRS and Director of the Computational Biomedicine Institute IAS-5 at FZJ, has been awarded the title of Distinguished Professor of the Vietnam National University by the President Prof. Dr. Phan Thanh Binh of the university. The Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM), is the largest and most distinguished university in Vietnam. The Chair of International Affairs and the Chair of Scientific and Technological Affairs of VNU-HCM nominated him for this honour because of his work in scientific research and his contribution to the establishment of the computational biomedical group at VNU-HCM and continuing collaboration with several research units within VNU-HCM and other Vietnamese institutes.
