Multidisciplinary Research at ACCRE

  • The MASI Lab in the School of Engineering is using ACCRE to identify latent features that may improve the accuracy of early prognosis for recovery from traumatic brain injury.
  • Bing Zhang's lab in Biomedical Informatics is applying novel bioinformatic analysis techniques to investigate interactions between signature proteins in colorectal cancer. (Zhang et al. Nature, 2014)
  • The Rokas Lab in Biological Sciences is performing genomic analyses to better understand genetic changes in complex metabolic networks. Image credit: J. Wisecaver and A. Rokas
  • The Meiler Lab in Chemistry uses ACCRE to predict the tertiary structure of membrane proteins from limited experimental data. Membrane proteins are important drug targets and drug discovery requires an improved understanding of their structures.
  • Clare McCabe's group in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is leveraging the computing power of graphics processing units at ACCRE to accelerate coarse-grained molecular dynamic simulations of lipid bilayers. (Gai et al. Journal of Chemical Physics, 2013)
  • The Holley-Bockelmann Group in Physics and Astronomy is exploring galaxy dynamics and important events occurring during the formation of the Milky Way.
