New SDSC Award Provides Easy Path to Supercomputing for Neuroscientists

Oct. 20 — The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the United Kingdom’s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) have awarded funding for the Neuroscience Gateways project led by the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego. The project will contribute to the national BRAIN initiative announced by the Obama administration in 2013 to advance researchers’ understanding of the human brain. The project builds upon the Neuroscience Gateway (NSG), first funded by the NSF in 2012, to develop a science gateway for the computational neuroscience community thereby increasing access to high-performance computing (HPC) viewed an essential resource to advancing research. Science gateways provide easy access through web based portal to advanced cyberinfrastructure tools and resources that can significantly improve the productivity of researchers. They successfully hide…
