2014 CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence Presented

The scholarship program of the Division of Chemical Information (CINF) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) is designed to reward graduate students and post-graduate fellows in chemical information and related sciences for scientific excellence and to foster their involvement in CINF. Since 2005, the program has awarded scholarships at each of the ACS National Meetings and has awarded 50 scholarships in total.

Applicants presented their posters at the CINF Welcoming Reception and the Sci-Mix session.

Katrin Stierand is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Bioinformatics (ZBH) at the University of Hamburg, Germany. Her excellent poster, co-authored by Matthias Rarey, was entitled “PoseView: visualization of protein-ligand interactions in two dimensions.”

The next scholarships are sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry and will be awarded at the ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, CA, in the fall of 2014.
