The mission of the Health Sciences Center for Computational Innovation (HSCCI) is to facilitate access to high performance computing resources for biomedical research. Home to IBM's next generation supercomputer – the Blue Gene/Q – it is one of the five most powerful university-based supercomputing sites in the nation. The Center for Governmental Research estimates that HSCCI will create 900 jobs in the community and generate $205 million in new research funding over the next 10 years.
"With this partnership, New York has an unprecedented opportunity to participate in cutting-edge healthcare research while creating hundreds of jobs at the University and in the Finger Lakes region."
