Prof. Eric May and Postdoc Shivangi Nangia will investigate Virus Infection Mechanisms on World’s Fastest Supercomputer for Biomolecular Simulations.

Drs. May and Nangia have received an allocation on the Anton2 supercomputer donated to the Pittsburg Supercomputing Center by D.E. Shaw Research. The allocation was granted based upon a competitive application process which involved peer review by a panel convened by the National Research Council. The allocation will allow them to analyze viral protein-membrane interactions over  timescales which are not feasible on standard supercomputing environments.
