In this video from the 2014 HPC User Forum in Seattle, Shane Corder from the Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine presents: Using Genomic Sequencing and HPC to Help Save The Lives of Critically Ill Children.

The Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine at Children’s Mercy was the first genome center in the world inside a children’s hospital. It is also one of the first to focus on genome sequencing and analysis for inherited children’s diseases. While most genome centers focus on research, the Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine develops new clinical tests as a starting point for next-generation medical treatments to improve outcomes in patients at Children’s Mercy and around the world.

HPC Matters! As Mike Bernhardt from Intel said after this talk, “Stories like this are the reason everyone in this room does HPC.”
