Core Computational Technology


  • Develop a cyberinfrastructure that provides high throughput computing and fosters collaborative work with global partners

A UW-Madison professor of computer sciences in the College of Letters and Science and director of the UW Center for High Throughput Computing, Miron Livny serves both Morgridge and the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery by providing the advanced computing tools and infrastructure necessary to facilitate the leading-edge work of scientists in both institutes. Livny, who specializes in distributed computing, will continue his work with researchers around the world to advance computer and data intensive science.

“Our center brings together a unique ensemble of scientists whose goals are to stimulate new discoveries by providing scientists with effective and dependable access to a broad range of state-of-the-art computing capabilities. By dramatically increasing their computing throughput, scientists who use our open facility have greatly increased the size and complexity of the problems they study.  As a leading research institute, Morgridge will bring together the next generation of students, educators and researchers in human health and in distributed computing to jointly address the frontiers of scientific computing.”
