Led by PI, Carlos Camacho, Department of Computational and Systems Biology and co-PI, Lillian Chong, Department of Chemistry, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) grant represents a joint effort between the Center for Simulation and Modeling (SaM) and the Department of Computational and Systems Biology at the University of Pittsburgh. SaM played a pivotal role in bringing together a team of researchers from the Departments of Computational Biology, Chemistry, and Biological Sciences for the proposal. The computing equipment acquired through the grant will be incorporated into the Frank computing cluster housed at CSSD. This infrastructure will catalyze research and educational activities in the area of computational modeling and simulations of biological systems and processes.
The Center for Simulation and Modeling (SaM) at the University of Pittsburgh is dedicated to supporting and facilitating computational-based research across campus. SAM serves as a catalyst for multidisciplinary collaborations among professors, sponsors modeling-focused seminars, teaches graduate-level modeling courses, and provides individual consultation in modeling to all researchers at the University. Our areas of research include: energy and sustainability, nanoscience and materials engineering, medicine and biology, and economics and the social sciences.
