Medical research and data gathering are critical to the advance of medicine. Recently, our very own Dr. Damuni was awarded time on the National Science Foundation’s super-computer to run three-dimensional modeling simulations for his project, Molecular dynamics simulation of protein phosphatase 2A(PP2A) and inhibitor 2 of protein phosphatase 2A(I2PP2A) involved in acute myeloid leukemia: General dynamics and the effect of changing physiological conditions on their interactions. This is an incredible opportunity for Saint James to actively contribute to the fight against leukemia.
The review panel making the recommendation to support Dr. Damuni’s work, oversees the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). “XSEDE is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise.”
According to XSEDE, the five-year, $121-million project is supported by the National Science Foundation. It replaces and expands on the NSF TeraGrid project, which enables more than 10,000 scientists to complete thousands of research projects, at no personal cost.
