How do I get a Person of Interest (POI) designation?

All MSI users must have a UMN Internet ID. If a user does not have a UMN Internet ID, the PI can get the user a Person of Interest (POI) account by working with their department’s HR representative. If the PI is not a UMN employee, the MSI Tech Support staff can assist them with creating POIs...

Medicinal Chemistry Support for Translational Medicine

Abstract: 

Medicinal Chemistry Support for Translational Medicine

The Walters group works on medicinal chemistry projects that support translational medicine at the University of Minnesota. Their current work include therapeutics or probes for muscular dystrophy, Alzheimer's disease, cardiac valve calcification, and brain cancer. They also work closely with other groups in the Institute for Therapeutics Discovery and Development. For example, they use MSI resources to perform high throughout screening triage for the HTS Core. They make extensive use of the Schrodinger software suite.

LATIS: Supporting Research Computing in the Liberal Arts

Abstract: 

LATIS: Supporting Research Computing in the Liberal Arts

The Liberal Arts Techologies and Innovation Services (LATIS) works to enhance research and scholarship by integrating appropriate technologies into the workflow of faculty, staff, and students. While LATIS is well positioned within the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) to provide the resources, tools, and expertise over infrastructure and software engineering, pedagogy, media, and social science research methods, their mandate is much broader. They strive to engage the broader scientific community in the issues that face the liberal arts, and they encourage their users to view their compute- and data-intensive tasks not only as as an integral component of their study design, but one that could benefit from communities outside of their own.

Part of this challenge is to convince CLA scholars to view their questions in the light of what HPC can offer, and when appropriate, to bring in the the resources MSI has at its disposal. Accordingly, this Principal Investigator uses MSI access to keeping abreast of the technologies and software MSI supports, to design proof-of-concepts directly on MSI's infrastructure, to consult with CLA clients on the appropriate use of MSI resources, and to make the transition between LATIS environments and MSI environments as clean as possible.

Simulations to Support Design of Microfluidic Devices

Abstract: 

Simulations to Support Design of Microfluidic Devices

Microfluidic devices are used for a wide variety of research topics because of the wide variety in design parameters available. These researchers use microfluidic devices to study droplet interfaces to gain a better understanding of how droplets (aerosols) of different materials (water, organics, salts, etc.) in the atmosphere interact with the environment. To perform the research with this cutting-edge approach, they plan to fabricate a number of microfluidic devices to generate and then capture the droplets of interest. To better narrow the design criteria we should use, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of the proposed designs are a must prior to fabrication of any devices. The researchers use the Ansys FLUENT package available through MSI.
