In this video from the 2015 PBS Works User Group, Joseph Lombardo from UNLV presents: Leveraging HPC for Alzheimer’s Research and Beyond.
“The National Supercomputing Center supports research projects at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas by providing a full-service supercomputing facility, plus available training and services, to academic and research institutions, government and private industry. NSCEE’s focus is on R&D related to energy, the environment, medical informatics and health care delivery. In this presentation, Joe Lombardo will discuss specific NSCEE projects that leverage HPC workload management to increase speed and performance for compute-intensive work. Lombardo will highlight results from an Alzheimer’s research project that benefited from using PBS Professional. He will then describe the NSCEE’s new system at the Supernap and how this system can be used to advance research for HPC users in both academia/R&D and commercial industry. Lombardo will also highlight two emerging projects; the New School of Medicine and new Technology park.”
