The overarching goal of this collaboration is to develop the data science infrastructure that will enable a new computational/experimental approach to semiconductor nanocrystal (SNC) design. SNCs make it possible to rapidly map locations and concentrations of tens to hundreds of molecules within intact biological tissue at sub-cellular resolution. With the support of NCSA, we will develop the computational collaborative infrastructure needed to facilitate a close feedback loop, through curation and sharing of the data and metadata obtained computationally and experimentally. Co-PIs for this project include Harley Johnson (Mechanical Science and Engineering), Cecilia Leal (Materials Science and Engineering), and Andrew Smith (Bioengineering).
