This is a project funded by NSF Award #1904444 under a Cooperative Agreement with Internet2 to manage a series of sub-awards to enable a selection of science projects to explore the use of commercial Cloud Services to advance their computational science needs.
The first phase of the project is now complete. From the 6 projects that participated in the first phase (project development), 2 projects were selected to be funded up to $880,000 each for the second phase of the project (accelerating science at scale). Those 2 project are: Deciphering the Brain's Neural Code, (Bill Lytton and Salvador Dura-Bernal, SUNY Downstate Medical Center); and Heterogeneous Computing for the LHC, (Philip Harris, MIT).
