The first paper from Phil’s summer internship at the IBM TJ Watson Research Center with Dr. Ruhong Zhou has just been published in Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics. “Structural Influence of Proteins Upon Adsorption to MoS2 Nanomaterials: Comparison of MoS2 Force Field Parameters” was a computational study to examine how a unique novel nanomaterial may have effects on protein denaturing. This work investigates the interface between materials and biology in hopes of a better understanding of nanotoxicity especially in our continuously material augmented world.
