Assistant Professor of Pharmacology May Khanna from the University of Arizona presented her work at the 2017 High Performance Computing Symposium (HPCS). Held in Kingston, Ontario, HPCS is Canada’s premiere research computing conference. Dr. Khanna shared her work to discover a treatment for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as “Lou Gerhig’s disease”. She worked with Cycle Computing to use a Google Cloud cluster to power her Schrödinger Glide™ simulations. Powered by CycleCloud™ software, she’s able to simulate binding of a million compounds to a protein in just a few hours for less than $200.
