Amid rising global cases and threatening variants, a major gap remains to be filled in the world’s strategy for defeating the pandemic: effective therapeutics. Now, a Massachusetts startup powered by a wide range of HPC resources – including hometown resources from the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) – has identified four promising FDA-approved drugs whose efficacy as COVID-19 therapeutics is supported by data from millions of patients.

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.
