The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announces that five science video animations produced at the center were among the 34 selected for the International Supercomputing '94 Conference showcase video, SuperViz '94, as excellent examples of scientific research. With the assistance of OSC staff Tim Rozmajzl, Leslie Southern, and Rob Berry, two of the projects were created by high school students who participated in OSC's 1994 Summer Institute program.

A University of Akron researcher is creating sophisticated computer simulations at the Ohio Supercomputer Center to help understand how “misfolded” proteins in the brain contribute to degenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
A new web-based application powered by supercomputers has the potential to inform public health decisions by visualizing genetic and evolutionary information about the spread of infectious diseases across time, geography, host animals and humans.
Geneva, Switzerland (March 30, 2010) At 1:06 p.m. Central European Summer Time (CEST) today, the first protons collided at 7 TeV in the Large Hadron Collider. These first collisions, recorded by the LHC experiments, mark the start of the LHC’s research program. Animation of the first reconstructed 7 TeV events seen by ALICE can be found on YouTube. For more information about this milestone event and American participation – including involvement by staff members of the Ohio Supercomputer Center, read the press releases below.
Physics Begins at the Large Hadron Collider
Text of the press release issued by Brookhaven National Laboratory and Fermilab:
Two Ohio State University astronomy researchers have established an international reputation for using X-rays and supercomputers to search the vast depths of space to identify elusive black holes. Now, they and their interdisciplinary colleagues are repositioning their scientific methodology to peer into the human body to enhance cancer therapy and diagnostics (theranostics).
