From our researchers

We used OrangeGrid to conduct many simulations of biological tissues. This simulation data helped us to make an exciting prediction about cells in the lungs of asthma patients.

M. Lisa Manning

Associate Professor, Physics, Syracuse University

OrangeGrid is a phenomenal resource and opens up a whole new range of computational problems that we can address… The more computational resources we have the more science we can do, that’s the bottom line.

Duncan Brown

Associate Professor of Physics, Syracuse University

With the help of the ITS staff who manage the Campus Grid, we have been able to accomplish some things that I was not anticipating when I started my position here.
