Prof. Major Dan Bar Ilan University

Prof. Dan T. Major completed his undergraduate studies in chemistry and computer sciences at Bar-Ilan University in 1997. He received his Ph.D. from Bar-Ilan University in 2003 under Prof. Bilha Fischer.

During his Ph.D. he worked on molecular properties of nucleotide derivatives, theoretical modeling of G-protein coupled receptors, as well as molecular recognition. He did a post-doctorate at the University of Minnesota under Prof. Jiali Gao during the years 2003-2006.

During his post-doctorate he was involved in development and application of theoretical methods for enzyme catalysis. Since 2007 he is a Faculty member in the Chemistry Department at Bar-Ilan University. His main research interests are in the field of computational chemistry, computational biochemistry, and computational nanotechnology. His group is actively involved in the theoretical studies of cathode materials for rechargeable batteries in tight collaboration with experimental groups.
