When other chemists reach the limits of what they can learn from experiments in the laboratory, Ohio State’s John Herbert leverages supercomputers to help fill in the rest of the story with computer modeling and simulation.
Don Stredney of the Ohio Supercomputer Center and Greg Wiet, MD, of Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Ohio State University Medical Center recently received from Columbus Business First a Health Care Heroes Honorable Mention in Innovation Award for their Virtual Temporal Bone surgery simulation project.
The business journal’s annual awards program honors those who have made an impact on health care in the community through their concern for patients, research and inventions, management skills, innovative programs for employees and service to the poor and uninsured.
Spring Break means warmer weather and the allure of sunny beaches. But while sun-loving students head out to beaches every spring to enjoy sand and surf, ultraviolet rays could be damaging their skin’s genetic code and causing skin cancer, the most widespread cancer in North America.
Future generations of spring beach-goers will be pleased to know that Ohio State University scientists are making progress towards understanding why certain DNA sites are much more susceptible to UV damage than others.
David Hudak, professor of computer science at Ohio Northern University, recently was named a member of the Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) Statewide Users Group.
The OSC Statewide Users Group, or SUG, connects OSC to the academic institutions in the state and provides a faculty and student viewpoint on OSC's operations.
A new guide to the Internet especially geared toward chemists has just been released. The Internet: A Guide For Chemists, edited by Steven M. Bachrach, covers basic information such as the history of the Internet, electronic mail, electronic lists, gopher, world wide web, and electronic conferencing plus a comprehensive section especially for chemists.
Columbus, Ohio (March 22, 2012) – Vijay Gadepally, a graduate research associate at the Ohio Supercomputer Center, represented The Ohio State University student body as he introduced President Barack Obama, who was on campus March 22 to promote his energy policy.
The Ohio State University and Ohio Supercomputer Center have received a four-year, $1.675 million federal grant to develop a computer tool that researchers, government leaders and the public can use to study and understand changes in energy-related technology, policy and pricing.
Ten years is a decent amount of time by most people's standards, but for an organization to be involved in the high performance computing industry that long it's more like celebrating a century rather than a decade.
