UMD Professor Subhash Basak Elected President of
International Society for Mathematical Chemistry


Subhash Basak, University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) Natural Resources Research Institute (NRRI) senior research associate and adjunct professor in the UMD Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, was recently elected President of the International Society for Mathematical Chemistry. He will serve a four-year term.

The Society is a body of international scientists promoting applications of mathematics to all branches of chemical research. This research is of interest to regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in computer (in silico) evaluation of chemicals for human and environmental health protection.

Mathematical chemistry is becoming increasingly valuable in computer-assisted drug designs and computer modeling of toxic chemicals. Evaluating chemicals with computers helps scientists prioritize them based on their predicted toxicity, saving millions of dollars in drug development.
