CSSAS brings together world-class scientists from a broad range of disciplines to form a single integrated group focused on common goals. Our team was carefully selected, not only on the basis of the individual achievements of its members, and not only because it will enable unique tools and computations to be deployed in unique macromolecules and structures, but because, through existing collaborations, we have already acquired a taste for what is possible when combining all of our skills and perspectives.
