Jens Meiler Awarded High Performance Computing Grant

Dr. Jens Meiler, Department of Chemistry, Vanderbilt University, is one of two recipients from Vanderbilt and Michigan State Universities who have won High Performance Computing Grants valued at up to $75,000 over three years. Dr. Meiler will work with researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and use ORNL's top-level supercomputers. In addition to the monetary award, ORNL provides faculty and student teams with valuable access to the laboratory's high-level supercomputers -- including Titan, the world's fastest computer -- and staff.

In a statement, Oak Ridage Associated Universities (ORAU) President Andy Page said, "The HPC grant program gives ORAU the unique opportunity to pair top researchers with the most powerful high performance computers in the world. Through this partnership with ORNL, we invest in our nation's researchers and continue to advance tomorrow's science and technology leaders."

The grant program was established in 2009. The awards are for $25K the first year, with potential funding for two more years.
