About Us

Palermo-cropped.jpgNicholas Palermo is the Director of the Computational Chemistry Core Facility.  He is responsible for the strategic and day to day operations of the Core and administrates the multi-campus Schrodinger software suite license.

Dr. Palermo is living proof that Nebraska has homegrown talent.  He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from the University of Nebraska-Omaha.  During his undergraduate, he was recruited by the NE-INBRE program, which started his interest in biomedical sciences.  He went on to receive a Doctorate in Biomedical Sciences from Creighton University in 2010.  His postgraduate education took place at UNMC for two years, and he then went on to work at the Holland Computing Center at UNL until 2020.  

The training and career experience Dr. Palermo received at such a diverse array of Nebraska institutions placed him in a unique position to direct the Computational Chemistry Core Facility at UNMC.  His experience with programming and high-performance computing coupled with his experience in molecular modeling and drug design gives him a broad range of tools to choose from when tackling a problem.
