“A little over a year ago LANL’s HPC Division purchased and fielded our first general purpose InfiniBand-based Lustre parallel file system. This new Lustre deployment, being the first of several similar planned deployments, gave us the opportunity to design a new storage backbone from the ground up and to gain in depth experience with and insight into Lustre technology in order to facilitate the installment and configuration of future systems.”

“Pharmacokinetic (PK) and Pharmacodynamic(PD) parameters determine the develop-ability of a drug candidate and estimation of them are time consuming and there is an urgent need for time efficient approaches. In the present talk, we showcase the parallel implementation of Grid search method on Xeon Phi using stepwise optimization techniques as a promising approach for the robust estimation of PK-PD parameters. The solution described herein, is of great importance in decision making in Pharmaceutical Industry.”
