“We’re driven by solving really big problems,” says Greg Voth, the Haig P. Papazian Distinguished Service Professor of Chemistry at the University of Chicago. His research team uses multiscale computational simulation to study complex biomolecular, condensed phase, and novel materials systems. But these systems and processes are so complex that they are beyond the reach of molecular dynamics simulations that model every atom—even the largest simulations, containing tens of millions of atoms, can show only a fraction of a process in a living cell, for example. To simulate processes over greater time and length scales would require a new method.

To combat viral diseases like HIV and Zika, scientists need to understand the “life cycle” of the virus and design drugs to interrupt it. But seeing what virus proteins do inside living cells is extremely difficult, even with the most powerful imaging technologies. Now scientists have developed an innovative supercomputer model of HIV that gives real insight into how a virus matures and becomes infective. “Understanding the details of viral maturation is considered a holy grail,” says Gregory Voth, a chemistry professor at the University of Chicago who built the model with research scientist John Grime.
NCSA releases 2017 Blue Waters Project Annual Report Detailing Innovative Research and Scientific Breakthroughs
Sep 1, 2017
The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign released today the 2017 Blue Waters Project Annual Report. For the project’s fourth annual report, research teams were invited to present highlights from their research that leveraged Blue Waters, the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) most powerful system for sustained computation and data analysis. Spanning economics to engineering, geoscience to space science, Blue Waters has accelerated research and impact across an enormous range of science and engineering disciplines throughout its more than 4-year history covered by the report series. This year is no different.
