In the face of the COVID 19 pandemic, a Massachusetts biotech startup turns to the MGHPCC for HPC resources in its hunt for existing FDA-approved drugs that might be a therapeutic candidate against the novel coronavirus. Continue reading Checking the Medicine Cabinet to Interrupt COVID-19 at the Molecular Level
It has long been recognized that computing, as a field, is strikingly less diverse than the users of the technology it produces, exhibiting a stubbornly enduring gender and underrepresented minority gap often referred to as “the Missing 70%.” MGHPCC partner, the NSF funded Expanding Computing Education Pathways (ECEP) Alliance, seeks to facilitate state-level systemic change to improve the quality of computing education and broaden participation in computing (BPC). ECEP’s goal is to increase the recruitment and retention of historically disenfranchised populations to K-16 computer science education through educational advocacy and policy reform.

Robert Marsland III is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Theoretical Biophysics Group at Boston University. He uses computers housed at the MGHPCC in his work hunting down the governing principles underpinning the dynamics and community ecology of microbial systems on scales from the human gut up to that of the planet itself.
