A theoretical chemist living in Lawrence, Kansas, Dr. Gerald Lushington has provided his expertise to the federal government as well as to the University of Kansas. While working for the federal government, he applied computational chemistry and materials science to defense-related issues, but at the University of Kansas, he turned his attention to biomedical sciences and served as the Director of multiple laboratories. Specifically, Dr. Gerald Lushington worked for the federal government as a Research Associate at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and as a Scientific Specialist at the Ohio Supercomputer Center. At the University of Kansas, he directed laboratories associated with the school’s Center of Excellence for Chemical Methodology, Specialized Chemistry Center, Kansas IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence, and the Molecular Graphics and Modeling Laboratory. Dr. Gerry Lushington also directed a lab related to a Wichita State University program titled The Aging Pituitary/Gonadal Axis.Dr. Gerald Lushington’s work for the federal government and the University of Kansas spans the years from 1997 to 2012. He was a student prior to 1997 at the University of New Brunswick, where he performed all of his higher education, including undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral studies. In 1991, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Mathematics, graduating with honors, and in 1996, he earned a Ph.D. in Theoretical Chemistry. As a postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Gerry Lushington studied chemical physics and assembled a suite of software that could compute the magnetic properties of molecules.In his latest venture, starting in July 2012, Dr. Gerald Lushington has started his own consulting company, Lushington in Silico. Currently working with eight clients, Dr. Gerry Lushington provides services that include modeling, data analysis, simulation, technical writing, project management, and other information technology services.
