In this video from DDN User Group at SC18, Steve Hindmarsh from the Crick Institute presents: Research Computing Storage at the Francis Crick Institute.

The Francis Crick Institute is dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Our work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and neurodegenerative diseases. The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 we moved into our brand new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under a single roof in Europe.

Steve Hindmarsh joined the Crick in September 2017 and currently leads the Scientific Computing STP of 20 staff providing research computing platforms and support including HPC (big data and compute), Databases, Digital Development and Application Integration. He is a biology graduate with over 15 years of experience working with scientists to meet their IT requirements. I was previously Head of IT at the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), where he was responsible for the provision of scientific computing and core IT services and support to 700 people across 4 UK sites.
