Computational biology is using HPC to rapidly design and develop ways to treat cancer and COVID. LLNL researcher Felice Lightstone discusses ATOM (Accelerated Therapeutic Opportunities in Medicine) in this edition of SC21 TV.
From studying radioactive isotope effects to better understanding cancer metastasis, the Laboratory’s relationship with cancer research endures some 60 years after it began, with historical precedent underpinning exciting new research areas.
The Department of Energy announced awards of $3.7 million for 13 new High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) projects, including a collaboration involving LLNL targeted at improving CO2 conversion.
LLNL engineers have demonstrated that aerodynamically integrated vehicle shapes decrease body-axis drag in a crosswind, creating large negative front pressures that effectively “pull” the vehicle forward against the wind, much like a sailboat.
Led by computational scientist Youngsoo Choi, the Data-Driven Physical Simulation reading group has been meeting biweekly since October 2019. The pandemic almost disbanded the group... until it turned into a virtual seminar series.
COVID-19 HPC Consortium scientists and stakeholders met virtually to mark the consortium’s one-year anniversary, discussing the progress of research projects and the need to pursue a broader organization to mobilize supercomputing access for future crises.
Our researchers will be well represented at the virtual SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE21) on March 1–5. SIAM is the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics with an international community of more than 14,500 individual members.
