The CCR Molecular Modeling Core, under the direction of Dr. Stewart Durell, was established to provide a convenient way for experimentalists to take advantage of molecular modeling and computational biology. In the framework of consultations, scientists can explore how such tools could benefit their projects. The Core then acts as a clearinghouse to help set up and use appropriate software, and/or form collaborations with other scientists. Upon mutual agreement, Core personnel will enter into a collaboration to do the modeling work themselves. All services of the Core are free of charge.
After introductions and initial recommendations, the Core and the investigator mutually decide whether to collaborate further. Initial contact and collaboration with the Core is free-of-charge.
