The Blue Waters Graduate Fellowship Program is a new and unique program funded by the National Science Foundation. This prestigious program will select graduate students from across the country to immerse themselves in a year of focused high-performance computing (HPC) research.
Urban air pollution is a major concern for Santiago, Chile, home to nearly 6 million people. The city lies in a basin surrounded by the Andes Mountains, and vehicle and industrial emissions tend to linger – especially in May June, and July when weather conditions make the air more stagnant.
University of Iowa neuroscientists are using high-performance computing (HPC) to study changes in the brains of Huntington disease (HD) patients before they begin to experience symptoms.
Uterine cancer is the fourth most common cancer among women, and the most common gynecological cancer. Researchers at the University of Iowa are using high-performance computing (HPC) to investigate how a tumor develops in normal uterine epithelium.
