In a new case study published on their website, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) features MSI researchers and the new supercomputer, Agate. The study highlights the increased computing capability, including GPUs, now available with Agate, and discusses the the wide variety of research being done by MSI users. Jim Wilgenbusch (Director, Research Computing), Graham Allan (MSI's Associate Director for Advanced Systems Operations), and Jim Ferguson (MSI’s Assistant Director for User Services) were interviewed for this case study.
MSI PI Kristin Hogquist (professor, Laboratory Medicine and Pathology) has been elected to membership of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). Membership in this organization is one of the highest honors a scientist can receive. Professor Hogquist uses resources at MSI to study the development of T lymphocytes in the thymus.
