UB Center Receives $11 Million to Dramatically Boost Computational Research

Posted on

BUFFALO, N.Y. — As it passes its 10th year in operation, the University at Buffalo’s Center for Computational Research has plenty to celebrate: in the past 12 months, it has received more than $11 million in new funding, including two major competitive federal grants for advancing computational science and a New York State grant to make supercomputing more environmentally friendly.

The new grants further enhance CCR’s reputation as a leading academic supercomputing center.

“In terms of external grants, our 10th year has been our best,” says Thomas R. Furlani, PhD, director of CCR at UB’s New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences and principal investigator on many of the new grants.

The new funds will support powerful, energy-efficient processors dedicated to advanced computational research at UB that will at a minimum, quadruple the center’s computational power and storage capacity.
