Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Powers the Research Community

Second of four webinars with Internet2®

At the University of California, Davis, researchers are using Oracle Cloud to support the development and use of a multi-scale computational drug screening pipeline that aims to enable more accurate assessments of the arrhythmogenic propensities of drugs based on their chemical structures.

 When a drug or combination of drugs interacts in unwanted or unexpected ways with human cardiac protein ion channels, the results can be deadly – but they won’t always be. Therefore, screening pharmaceutical compounds for their potential effects on the heart is critical to drug safety and efficacy.

 With OCI virtual machines, bare metal GPU and CPU shapes, and ultra-fast HPC networking, UC Davis researchers can accelerate their molecular dynamics simulations and 3D cardiac tissue modeling, saving both costs and time.

Produced with Internet2 and the member community

Oracle is pleased to join all Internet2 members in advancing technology infrastructures and services that support research and scholarship, help institutions enhance their operating environments, and address challenges that no single institution could solve alone
