While widely successful, conventional TST is relatively simplistic and can lead to inaccurate rates for many classes of reactions. Alternative, more accurate rate theories such as variational transition state theory (VTST) are well established but incur exceptionally high computational costs, which limits their widespread use. Our goal is to lower these costs, thereby enhancing the reliability of rate predictions, by adapting algorithms typically used in signal processing and information recovery.

The extraordinary impact of COVID-19 requires equally extraordinary measures, which are the focus of this workshop. Four major themes will be represented: Public Health Challenges, The Role of Data Science, Measuring and Managing Economic Impact, and The Path Forward. One unique aspect of this workshop is the breadth of participants, bringing together stakeholders from the most relevant communities, including biomedical experts, epidemiologists, public health officials, economists, business professionals, and bioethicists. One of the key objectives of this workshop is to encourage collaboration across disciplines that have practical impact in the near term.
We manage one of the world’s most preeminent research networks. From historic experiments in nuclear energy, developmental biology, and particle physics to today’s challenges of renewable power, dark matter, and microbial ecology, these institutions have long been at the vanguard of discovery.
