OSC Aids Ohio State Chemists in Determining Nature of Ice

Chemists at The Ohio State University and their colleagues may have settled a 70-year-old scientific debate on the fundamental nature of ice.

A new statistical analysis mechanical theory has confirmed what some scientists only suspected before: that under the right conditions, molecules of water can freeze together in just the right way to form a perfect crystal. And once frozen, that ice can be manipulated by electric fields in the same way that magnets respond to magnetic fields.

OSC, Nationwide Children's use supercomputers to speed diagnoses

Partnership also offers visualization to provide personalized medical solutions

Columbus, Ohio (January 19, 2011) - Worried about her high fever and severe abdominal pain, a young couple rushed their baby daughter to the emergency department of Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Physicians there found a lump in her belly, and, after examining X-rays and blood work, confirmed the parents’ worst fear: their 18-month-old little girl had neuroblastoma, a rare pediatric cancer that involves the adrenal glands.



Dinosaur Takes Center Stage at Ohio Supercomputer Center

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Dec. 1, 2005 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will take a journey 66 million years back in time today, to showcase Jane, a Tyrannosaurus Rex exhibit at the Burpee Museum of Natural History in Rockford, IL. D ozens of presenters, hundreds of participants, and thousands of viewers in 40 countries on six continents around the world will be along for the ride.

Ohio Supercomputer Center, Ralph Regula School to power Choose Ohio First bioinformatics program

DNA imageConsortium garners $4.475 million in state funding, aims to put Ohio in Top 5

Columbus, Ohio – March 18, 2008 – A proposal led by Ohio University and powered by the resources of the Ohio Supercomputer Center and the Ralph Regula School of Computational Science is aimed at positioning the state as a national leader in the emerging field of bioinformatics.

Biomedical Applications Simulations

As advanced simulations integrate increasingly larger data sets, it is essential to explore the use of high performance computing to assure tractable methods of investigating computational data. As these data combine information from multiple sources, it is important to research advanced interface technology and develop more intuitive methods for interaction with large and complex multimodal data sets. Advanced intuitive interfaces are needed to integrate these vast amounts of multisensory data into a single coherent simulation.
