Expert Insights: The State of Biomedical Research and HPC

  The Pace of Innovation Life sciences and healthcare research, also referred to as biomedical research, is one of the fastest-paced and most directly impactful fields of science for people today. In the last 10 years, our knowledge of biology, the human body, and when and how diseases arise has increased exponentially. One of the

Cancer Research and HPC: Advancing Science to Save Lives

While the death rate from cancer has declined significantly over the past two decades, 17 million new cases of cancer were reported, worldwide, in 2018. And 9.5 million people died from the disease.1 Researchers around the globe are working steadily to identify new methods for detecting and treating all forms of cancer. And high-performance computing

HPC Is Right. HPC Is Now. Five Pressing Questions with Dr. Lin Gan

Dr. Lin Gan is an SC conference success story on repeat. In 2016, he was part of the 12-person team awarded the Gordon Bell Prize for developing a solver used to understand fluid dynamics created specifically for improving weather simulations.1 Their solver could successfully scale the entire Chinese-built Sunway TaihuLight system, the fastest supercomputer in

SC19 April Need to Know: Precision Health & ‘HPC Is Now’, Job Fair Highlights, Workshops Schedule Coming Soon, Tech Party Reveal, Book Your Hotel May 1

  April’s Theme: Precision Medicine Healthcare is becoming increasingly precise in its ability to tackle diseases, especially various manifestations of disease in specific individuals.
