A New Neuroscience Gateway to HPC

UC San Diego and Yale University have been awarded a collaborative grant by the NSF to develop a neuroscience gateway that will provide neuroscientists with broader HPC resources. The project will offer compute time to neuroscience users through a portal-based environment for uploading models, retrieving and storing data, and specifying the parameters for running neuronal simulations, including querying the status and completion of various jobs.

Many of these investigators and students would otherwise find it very difficult, if not impossible, to implement and study models that press or exceed the storage and computing speed capabilities that are under their direct control,” said Amit Majumdar, who directs the scientific computing applications group at SDSC and is also part of UC San Diego’s Department of Radiation Medicine and Applied Sciences.
