LLNL leads multi-institutional team in modeling protein interactions tied to cancer

Computational scientists, biophysicists and statisticians from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) are leading a massive multi-institutional collaboration that has developed a machine learning-based simulation for next-generation supercomputers capable of modeling protein interactions and mutations that play a role in many forms of cancers.

New UW center receives NIH grant to improve the fight against cancer

To bridge the gap between cancer interventions and their implementation within communities across the country, the National Institute of Health’s National Cancer Institute is funding the creation of six implementation science centers focused on cancer control. The creation of these centers are part of NIH’s Cancer Moonshot initiative to make more therapies available and improve prevention and detection. One of the six centers will be at the UW.
