A summer job can be a lot of things: a resume builder in a new industry, a chance to learn and acquire new skills, an opportunity to explore a new city and meet new friends, a chance to volunteer and do some good for a community. There aren't too many programs that can fulfill all of these goals simultaneously, but the Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship (DSSG) is a rare exception, providing students from around the world with a chance to combine technical development with meaningful, rewarding work, in a vibrant, social setting.

For December's Inside the Discovery Cloud event, Juan de Pablo, Liew Family Professor in Molecular Engineering at the IME, discussed how his laboratory uses computational approaches to study DNA mapping and self-assembly. Then, Michael Wilde, CI Senior Fellow, and software architect at Argonne National Laboratory discussed methods developed and applied at UChicago and Argonne that help researchers conquer the complexity of high performance computer modeling and better integrate it into the scientific knowledge discovery process.
