Sykhere’s LSAMP Summer Research Internship in the group is coming to an end and he has been presenting the results of the work he has conducted with Mojtaba on three occasions over the last few days, i.e., at the LSAMP Summer Research Program Symposium (poster) and the 23rd Annual McNair Scholars Research Conference in Niagara Falls (poster and talk). The title of his presentation is “Applicability Domain of Machine Learning Models for the Structurally Limited Chemical Data Sets Generated by Virtual High-Throughput Screening”.

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program seeks to diversify the STEM workforce by significantly increasing the numbers of students that successfully complete high-quality degree programs in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Particular emphasis is placed on the support of groups that historically have been underrepresented in the STEM field, i.e., African-Americans, Alaskan Natives, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Pacific Islanders. The LSAMP Summer Research Internship Program is a 10-week intensive summer research experience for undergraduates sponsored by the NSF.
