Tkatchenko Contributes to Recent Achievement in Chemistry

Posted on 11/5/15 in News

An article in a recent issue of Nature entitled “Software predicts slew of fiendish crystal structures” prominently mentions Alexandre Tkatchenko, who led a research team at Fritz Haber Institute that contributed to the prediction of the crystal structure of five, complex, ‘drug-like’ organic molecules. The achievement was announced on October 27, 2015 at a workshop in Cambridge, United Kingdom. Tkatchenko was a participant in two IPAM long programs – Bridging Time and Length Scales in Materials Science and Bio-Physics (2005) and Navigating Chemical Compound Space for Materials and Bio Design (2011) – and he is an organizer of the upcoming program, Understanding Many-Particle Systems with Machine Learning (2016).
