A quick series of links from a few institutions garnering funding for high performance computing activities.
The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center said today it has received two grants worth a total of $10.1 million to set up a high-performance computing cluster and center to safeguard research data. The money comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, aka “the stimulus,” via the National Institutes of Health. The plan is to create an energy efficient facility that will safely store “irreplaceable research data,” and to buy high-powered instruments, the center said in an e-mailed statement.
Lehigh Technologies, an innovative manufacturer of high-performance, engineered rubber powder, announced it has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to support research into the development of commercially viable composites of plastics and micron scale engineered rubber powders manufactured from end of life tire materials. The research grant, under NSF’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, will fund a collaborative program involving Lehigh Technologies scientists and a team from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
