Establishing Innovation At The Centre Of Drug Delivery

By | Uncategorised | No Comments
Trailblazing work at a London research centre is aiding development of new drug therapies that are not just more effective at preventing and treating diseases but also faster and more affordable to manufacture. Hosted at UCL in collaboration with Imperial College London, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Emergent Macromolecular Therapies (CIM in EMTs) has a clear mission: to deliver a step-change in the competitiveness of the UK’s biopharmaceuticals sector, generating opportunities for industrial growth as well as improved healthcare. For example, the work of Professor Paul Dalby’s team – harnessing the resources...

Emerald Gives Green Light to Oilfield Breakthrough

By | Energy and climate change, Innovation and infrastructure | No Comments
Pioneering software designed to help the oil and gas industry boost production and profits has been developed with crucial input from Emerald, the UK’s most powerful supercomputer of its kind. The brainchild of Oxfordshire start-up Ridgeway Kite Software, the new tool is set to deliver a big leap forward in the ability to simulate oil and gas reservoirs – benefiting engineers facing key decisions on how many wells to drill and exactly where to locate them. Harnessing Emerald, a cutting-edge facility developed by three SES members, has helped enable rapid development at affordable cost and confirmed the software’s suitability for use...

Why Use High Performance Computing with Dr. Vincent

By | Advanced materials, Energy and climate change, Innovation and infrastructure | No Comments

We sat down with Dr. Peter Vincent to gain some insight into his research at Vincent Lab (www.imperial.ac.uk/aeronautics/research/vincentlab/). Dr. Vincent has been a key user of SES machine Emerald, and discusses here the use of HPC in his research and why Emerald (an SES machine) has been a unique and necessary facility. If you missed part one, catch it here, and stay tuned for part three!
