NSF Funds Supercomputing for Neuroscientists at SDSC

Visualization of 3-D Cerebellar Cortex model generated by researchers Angus Silver and Padraig Gleeson from University College London. The NeuroScience Gateway was used for simulations. Neuroscientists will find an easier path to supercomputiong thanks to new SDSC funding from the NSF. 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…
