Using HPC for Research and Career Development in Life Sciences

“The opportunity to push myself in a new direction and see it come to fruition is why I pursued a career in science and using NeSI was an excellent way to include transferable skills and personal development in my PhD. "

A statistical modelling approach to monitoring ecosystems

“From my perspective, it was extraordinarily beneficial to have access to NeSI as resource, it really transformed what I thought I would be able to do. The field of statistics at the moment is really on the edge and is advancing all the time."

Improving heart disease prediction and prognosis

“NeSI enabled us to run biologically realistic, numerical experiments, which are impossible to conduct in vivo.”

University of Otago researchers join the international high-speed data superhighway

“NeSI provides its partners with access to best High Performance Computing practices from around the world; and with the concepts, ideas and practical help to make these sorts of research IT services a reality.”
Virtual post-capillary venule, informed by biological data, used in our computational simulations

Understanding mechanical signalling in the microcirculation

“Our computational challenges were significant and required the high performance computing facilities available through NeSI.”

Multi-scale modelling of saliva secretion

“Thanks to NeSI, we were able to render higher quality images and run many more simulation variants than would have been possible on a desktop computer.” Prof. James Sneyd

Improving the treatment of heart disease

“Improving stent design by measuring the impact on blood flow may significantly reduce stent failures and ultimately save lives.”

Genetics and metabolic syndrome

“By using NeSI, the length of time to complete this analysis was reduced by weeks.”

Pushing cancer cells’ self-destruct button

“Synthetic lethality is an interaction between two genes where only inactivation of both genes kills a cell or organism.”
