Grad student Zhao Qin receives scholarship award
Ph.D. student Zhao Qin recently received a scholarship award from the Chinese government’s China Scholarship Council designated to encourage research excellence and recognize the academic achievements of Chinese students studying abroad. Qin works on the computational modeling of protein material in Professor Markus Buehler’s Laboratory for Atomistic and Molecular Mechanics. He is particularly focused on using molecular simulation to study, at multiple scales, the fundamental mechanisms of human genetic diseases such as progeria syndrome, which causes rapid aging and premature death in children.
