HPC and Precision Medicine: A New Framework for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Joe Lombardo from UNLV gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “The University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health have been awarded an $11 million federal grant from the National Institutes of Health and National Institute of General Medical Sciences to advance the understanding of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. In this session, we will present how UNLV’s National Supercomputing Institute plays a critical role in this research by fusing brain imaging, neuropsychological and behavioral studies along with the diagnostic exome sequencing models to increase our knowledge of dementia-related and age-associated degenerative disorders.”

Leveraging HPC for Alzheimer’s Research and Beyond

“The National Supercomputing Center supports research projects at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas by providing a full-service supercomputing facility, plus available training and services, to academic and research institutions, government and private industry. NSCEE’s focus is on R&D related to energy, the environment, medical informatics and health care delivery. In this presentation, Lombardo will highlight results from an Alzheimer’s research project and the NSCEE’s new system at the Supernap and how it is being used to advance research for HPC users in both academia/R&D and commercial industry. Lombardo will also highlight two emerging projects; the New School of Medicine and new Technology park.”

Leveraging HPC for Alzheimer’s Research and Beyond

Joseph Lombardo from UNLV presented this talk at the PBS Works User Group. “Lombardo will highlight results from an Alzheimer’s research project that benefited from using PBS Professional. He will then describe the NSCEE’s new system at the Supernap and how this system can be used to advance research for HPC users in both academia/R&D and commercial industry. Lombardo will also highlight two emerging projects; the New School of Medicine and new Technology park.”
