Second Thermal and Fluids Engineering Conference April 2017, Las Vegas, USA

Alzheimer’s Disease continues to cause tremendous familial, social, and economic burdens to modern society. Despite substantial progress, existing treatment approaches are limited – so new therapeutic approaches are desperately needed. The National Supercomputing Institute currently collaborates with clinical researchers to compare the genomes of Alzheimer’s patient with normal patients. Specifically, our researchers need to enhance the statistical power of analyses due to the addition of hundreds of new patients to the study. The challenge is dealing with the massive genomics data sets and the need for a major leap in computational performance.
