WVU-led Dolly Sods GPU cluster to drive new frontiers of computational research in physics and astronomy, drug discovery, data science and more
Blake Mertz, is leading a project, funded by a $1.1 million National Science Foundation grant for a new graphics processing unit computer cluster called “Dolly Sods”. It will enable researchers throughout the state to accelerate computational research in fields such as drug development, interstellar phenomena, biometrics, material design and business logistics and management.

Impacts of Cholesterol on huntingtin/lipid aggregation
Molecular orientations at interfacesThe Goulay Group reports that increased concentrations, preferred orientations, and decreased solvation near the air–water surface may lead to differences in reactivities between surface-active and surface-inactive molecules.
Fabien Goulay answers the question "Where does a candle go when it burns?"
Chemistry is the science of the materials we use, the medicine we take, the environment we live in and the food we eat. Our department gives students the opportunity to learn the skills that will lead to tomorrow’s discoveries.B.S. in Chemistry B.A. in Chemistry
