Self-assembled Peptide-p-electron Supramolular Polymers:Student Training and Dissemination

Undergraduate   and   High   School   Research. At   JHU, undergraduates  Rachel  Barrows  and  Celina  Nichols  worked  on biosensitive  electronic  devices,  and  Clara  Troyano-Valls  on heterostructure self-sorting. Clara will enter MIT for graduate work in Chemical Engineering. At Chicago, undergraduate Olivia Dunne and high school senior Isabella Moughal worked on molecular simulations of peptides. Isabella will attend UIUC for an undergraduate degree in engineering. At UIUC, high school student Dina Hashash developed 3D visualizations of assembled oligopeptides.


Broad Dissemination. All computational codes have been hosted on GitHub  (,  simulation  trajectories on  the  Materials Data Facility (, and a project webpage provides  information  about  the  team  and  research  outcomes  (
