ed physics, and astronomy.

The center will be physically located in the Rensselaer Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies building with research collaborations occurring throughout campus and at other universities. After two years, the researchers will be eligible to apply for additional NIH funding to support a national resource center for cheminformatics.

Additional members of the Rensselaer faculty and staff involved in the RECCR project are: Kristin Bennett, professor of mathematical science; Wilfredo Colon, associate professor of chemistry and chemical biology; Steven Cramer, professor of chemical and biological engineering; Mark Embrechts, associate professor of decision sciences and engineering systems; Angel Garcia, senior constellation chaired professor in biocomputation and bioinformatics and professor of physics; Shekhar Garde, associate professor of chemical and biological engineering; James Moore, professor of chemistry and chemical biology; Nagamani Sukumar, senior research associate in chemistry and chemical biology; Mark Wentland, professor of chemistry and chemical biology; Mohammed Zaki, assistant professor of computer science; and Michael Zuker, professor of mathematical sciences.

"As Rensselaer continues its expansion into biotechnology and life sciences research, we applaud this interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers as an excellent illustration of how Rensselaer will contribute to accelerating discovery," said Omkaram "Om" Nalamasu, vice president for research.
