About the NRBSC
The National Resource for Biomedical Supercomputing (NRBSC) pursues leading edge research in high
performance computing and the life sciences, and fosters exchange
between PSC expertise in computational science and biomedical
Our focus is two-fold: computational biomedical research and outreach to the national biomedical research
community through education and publications.
Research at NRBSC is centered in three areas: microphysiology; volumetric visualization and analysis; and computational structural biology.
NRBSC's education arm includes not only user training, but also software distribution, publications, and other outreach activities
such as online courses and workshop webcasts.
The National Resource for Biomedical Supercomputing, formerly the Biomedical Initiative, was established at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center in 1987 as the first extramural biomedical supercomputing program in the country funded by the National Institutes of Health.
