The Amsterdam Center for Multiscale Modeling (ACMM) is a center for theory and multiscale modeling in chemistry, physics and biology. It manifests the synergetic connection that exists between computational chemistry and physics groups in Amsterdam. The ACMM core is formed by these three groups:
- Division of Theoretical Chemistry, VU University Amsterdam
- Computational Chemistry and Physics, University of Amsterdam
- Theoretical Biophysics, FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics
Besides building on the strong ties between the three core groups, the ACMM reaches out and connects other modeling groups within and outside Amsterdam. The ACMM consists of the following associate partners:
- Biomolecular Simulation and Modeling, Division of Molecular Toxicology, VU University Amsterdam
- Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, Amsterdam
- Computational Biophysics, University of Twente
- Prof.dr. Rutger A. van Santen, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven
- Theoretical Chemistry group, Institute for Molecules and Materials, Radboud University Nijmegen
- Division of Organic Chemistry, VU University Amsterdam
The aim of the ACMM is:
- To develop computational tools to model and predict, from first principles, the behavior of complex chemical and biological processes.
- To collaborate with users in industry and academia in order to apply these tools to problems of great societal relevance.
- To disseminate the knowledge about multiscale modeling by training through national and European training courses for students and research scientists.
