In this video from Switzerland HPC Conference, Nick Holway from the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (NIBR) presents: NIBR Scientific Computing.

“Focused on High Performance and Scientific Computing at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (NIBR), in Basel Switzerland, Nick Holway and his team provide HPC resources and services, including programming and consultancy for the innovative research organization. Supporting more than 6,000 scientists, physicians and business professionals from around the world focused on developing medicines and devices that can produce positive real-world outcomes for patients and healthcare providers, Nick also contributes expertise in bioinformatics, image processing and data science in support of the researchers and their works.”

The Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR) is the innovation engine of Novartis. We collaborate across scientific and organizational boundaries, with a focus on powerful new technologies that have the potential to help produce therapeutic breakthroughs for patients. Researchers have used the standard tools of biology and chemistry to develop many successful treatments, and we’ll continue to use them. However we recognize that these tools leave many drug targets—key proteins and nucleic acids known to play a role in disease—out of reach. We would like to hit these targets to fight diseases, many of which have dodged the conventional molecules in our arsenal. To address this challenge, we are blazing a new path: organizing our early discovery efforts around a scientific discipline called chemical biology.
