Abstract:   High-performance computing has become integral to the future success of precision medicine. Catalyzed by the dramatic increase in the amount of data available through advanced next generation sequencing and advanced imaging techniques, new approaches are in development to address the complexities of understanding and modeling biology. When coupled with long-standing computational chemistry and biology techniques used in drug discovery, an exciting frontier emerges for innovation as the communities join. The use of deep learning to develop data driven models combined with exascale capabilities to explore and validate models, adds an exciting dimension for the future of both HPC and precision medicine. The HPC Applications in Precision Medicine workshop aims to bring together the computational and life sciences communities to share experiences, examine current challenges, and explore future opportunities for applications of high-performance computing in precision medicine.  

Targeted Audience 
Targeted Audience is cross-disciplinary including HPC professionals interested in exploring and learning more about HPC applications in precision medicine, and life science professionals interested in exploring opportunities for HPC to accelerate and extend their research efforts.
