Video: Moving Towards Personalized Medicine at The UberCloud

“In the last six years UberCloud has performed 200 cloud experiments with engineers and scientists and their complex applications. In a series of challenging high performance computing applications in the Life Sciences, UberCloud’s HPC Containers have been packaged recently with several scientific workflows and application data to simulate complex phenomena in human’s heart and brain. As the core software for these HPC Cloud experiments we are using the (containerized) Abaqus solver running in a fully automated multi-node HPE environment in the Advania HPC Cloud.”

Living Heart Project: Using HPC in the Cloud to Save Lives

Burak Yenier and Francisco Sahli gave this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “Cardiac arrhythmia can be a potentially lethal side effect of medications. Before a new drug reaches the market, pharmaceutical companies need to check for the risk of inducing arrhythmias. Currently, this process takes years and involves costly animal and human studies. In this project, the Living Matter Laboratory of Stanford University developed a new software tool enabling drug developers to quickly assess the viability of a new compound. During this session we will look at how High Performance Computing in the Cloud is being used to prevent severe side effects and save lives.”
