George Stan is a physical chemist with research interests in computational biophysical chemistry. He received his undergraduate degree in 1994 at the University of Bucharest, Romania. He obtained his PhD in 1999 at the Pennsylvania State University for work on absorption of gases in carbon nanotubes and wetting of alkali surfaces.
His postdoctoral work in the Institute for Physical Science and Technology at the University of Maryland (2000-2001) and the National Institutes of Health (2002-2006) focused on chaperonin mediated protein folding. His research involves application and development of computational methods within the CHARMM molecular modeling program, as well as bioinformatics methods.
In 2005 he was awarded the Lenfant Biomedical Fellowship at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
He joined the faculty at the University of Cincinnati in 2006.
