Peter Pulay has been appointed to the Mildred Cooper Chair in Bioinformatics Research at the University of Arkansas. The chair was created through a $750,000 gift from philanthropists John and Pat Cooper, and will be matched through the University of Arkansas Matching Gift Program to create a $1.5 million endowment. Pulay is a theoretical chemist who is currently developing parallel software programs to reduce the time needed to predict the properties of molecules. In 2003, Pulay was awarded the Schroedinger Medal by the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists.
