Workshop 2

July 1st - 9h00 to 12h30
HPC and Life sciences

Chairman : Dr. Marie-Christine SAWLEY, CMS Institute for Particle Physics - ETH Zurich

Quantitative life science aims at study systematically relations between molecules, cells and organisms, opening new paths to scientific discovery. Fundamentally interdisciplinary, this field makes large use of mathematics, physics, chemistry, image processing and high performance computing. This workshop will give the opportunity to measure the important progress made in pharmacology, medical imaging, bioinformatics, biological system modeling and applications in clinical medicine thanks to HPC, with a particular perspective from industry and society.
