Welcome to the Center for Molecular Modeling

The Center for Molecular Modeling focuses on frontier research in six major areas - chemical kinetics in nanoporous materials, computational material research on the nanoscale, spectroscopy, many-particle physics, model development & bio- and organic chemistry. Our multidisciplinary research team is currently composed of about 35 researchers from the Faculties of Sciences (WE05) and Engineering and Architecture (EA17, EA10) of Ghent University.

The thesis subjects offered in the academic year 2016-2017 are available now! Have a look!
