In 2014, Professor Artem R. Oganov established the International Center for Materials Discovery (ICMD) at Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an. The main research directions of ICMD include:

(1) Development of the core technology of the material genome, namely evolutionary structure prediction, high-throughput calculation, machine learning algorithm and dedicated database construction for new material discovery;

(2) To discover new materials based on material genomes with the goal of shortening the research and development cycle and reducing R&D costs. To realize the transition of the research mode of new materials discovery from experience-directed to data-driven.

Artem R. Oganov教授于2014年依托西北工业大学材料学院组建了材料基因组国际合作研究中心。中心主要研究方向包括:
