PSC is Finalist for Computerworld Honors

Terascale Computing System

PSC is one of five finalists for the 2003 Computerworld Honors in Science. The awards program singles out innovations in information technology that benefit society. Hewlett-Packard nominated PSC for development and implementation of LeMieux, PSC's terascale system, as a unique and powerful computing resource that has already begun to yield significant scientific gain.

A case study supporting the nomination highlights the research of Michael Klein and colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania, who used LeMieux for simulations that open the way to development of anti-microbial polymers. These molecules offer great potential to reduce loss of life caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria and hospital-acquired infection, the fourth-leading cause of death in the U.S.
