A research group led by Ohio State’s Metin Gurcan, Ph.D., has been leveraging Ohio Supercomputer Center resources to develop a computer-assisted diagnosis tool to improve grading of a common cancer.
Since 1987, OSC has been providing our clients services in four areas, or functions:
Supercomputing. OSC provides the computational power and storage that scientists need to meet their research goals. Whether researchers need to harness the incredible power of a parallel processor cluster to better understand deep space, a vector processor machine to do weather modeling, or a mid-size shared memory processor system to model the human heart, OSC has the hardware and software solutions to meet their needs.
Research. A staff of high performance computing and networking research experts maintain active research programs in HPC and Networking, Homeland Security and Defense, Environmental Sciences, Engineering and Life Sciences. Our goals are to lead science and engineering research efforts, assist researchers with custom needs and collaborate with regional, national and international researchers in groundbreaking initiatives.
Education. OSC has a national reputation for its training and education programs. Staff teach faculty and student researchers through scientific computing workshops, one-on-one classes, and web-based portal training. Ohio students gain exposure to the world of high performance computing and networking during our annual summer institutes for young women in middle school and for junior and senior high school students. And, the statewide, virtual Ralph Regula School of Computational Science coordinates computational science and engineering education activities for all levels of learning.
Cyberinfrastructure. The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s cyberinfrastructure and software development researchers provide the user community with various high performance computing software options. This variety enables researchers to select parallel computing languages they most prefer, and just as important, it creates a test bed for exploring these systems. By taking a holistic approach to generating efficient supercomputing applications for researchers, the Center’s cyberinfrastructure and software development research capitalizes on all the components within the cycle of innovation — development, experimentation, and analysis - and continuously improves the services provided.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – November 30, 2006 – Now Ohio’s research scientists and faculty members alike can use the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) high performance computing resources (HPC). Graduate and postdoctoral students enjoy the same access through their professors.
Unlike many computing facilities, OSC’s liberal user policy puts some of the world’s most powerful supercomputing resources at the fingertips of academic researchers and computational scientists – resources that were once exclusively reserved for tenure-track faculty members.
Chemists at The Ohio State University and their colleagues may have settled a 70-year-old scientific debate on the fundamental nature of ice.
A new statistical analysis mechanical theory has confirmed what some scientists only suspected before: that under the right conditions, molecules of water can freeze together in just the right way to form a perfect crystal. And once frozen, that ice can be manipulated by electric fields in the same way that magnets respond to magnetic fields.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – January 27, 2004 -- The fiscal year 2004 Consolidated Appropriations Act, approved earlier by Congress and signed into law last week by President Bush, directs $5.1 million in federal funds to the Ohio Board of Regents to make Ohio the world’s leader in using state-of-the-art computer networking to improve education, research and medical care.
The federal funds support new initiatives that will take advantage of Ohio’s 1,600-mile Third Frontier Network, the most advanced state-wide computer network in the nation.

On April 19-20 and May 3-4, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will present a Basic UNIX and Intermediate UNIX workshop, respectively, at Clark State Community College in Springfield, Ohio. There is no charge to attend, and members from the community, area businesses, and higher education institutions are invited.
Columbus, Ohio -- April 23, 2001 -- OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) has announced that 15 high school finalists will embark on its Summer Institute (SI) 2001: An Odyssey in Supercomputing.
The OSC SI Program has been offered for 13 years to Ohio's brightest high school freshmen and sophomores. SI gives students the opportunity to work with OSC's most advanced supercomputers.

Larry Faulkner, president of the University of Texas at Austin, was recently elected Chair of the Internet2 Board of Trustees. Faulkner succeeds University of North Carolina President Molly Broad, who held the Board Chair position since 2001. Broad served on the Internet2 Board since September 1997 and Faulkner has served since 1998, and began serving as Chair May 1.
