COSBIOM - Towards Excellence in Computational Structural Biology and Biomaterials
 
The project COSBIOM is a support action to enhance Polymer Research Center (PRC)’s standing by the following activities:

 

1.  Networking with European centers through exchange of visiting scientists/ young researchers and through execution of an international workshop. This will integrate our competency in developing new computational methodologies in the fields of structural biology and bioinformatics with experimental and computational groups/companies in Europe for the solution of health-related problems and enhance our collaborations related to the design of stereo-selective synthesis of drugs, and design/synthesis of novel multifunctional polymers with applications in dentistry and nanotechnology.

 

2.  Increasing our computational, experimental and human resources, which will strengthen our infrastructure, increase the efficiency of our research and enhance our collaboration potential. The share of our computational, software and data resources with our collaborators and other external users will be achieved by a grid infrastructure built on our resources.

 

Closely tied with the plan, PRC will continue to effectively disseminate its research results to the scientific world through meetings and publications. The COSBIOM will contribute to European research as well as to research and technological development capacity in Turkey, which will in turn increase Turkey’s participation in the EU Framework Programs and job opportunities for young Turkish scientists.

 

 
Objectives PDF Print
 
Within the scope of Specific Support Action, the objectives of this project can be stated as:
 
  • To enhance PRC’s excellence in the fields of computational structural biology and biomaterials by networking with European Research Centers through exchange of researchers (visiting scientists, postdoctoral fellows) and organization of an international workshop in molecular modeling. Our focus will be enriching our knowledge basis through interdisciplinary cooperation.
  • To increase our research capacity by upgrading PRC’s computational and experimental resources and by increasing its human potential through hiring of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.
  • To ensure the continuity of PRC’s overall enhanced capacity within the scope of this support action by joint research activities and preparing new project proposals with our collaborators in Europe
  • To disseminate all our joint research results to the scientific world by attendance at scientific meetings, publications in peer-reviewed journals, through continuous posting of activities and results at our website and providing our novel computational methodologies to the scientific world via the grid infrastructure to be implemented on our computer network.
