Story Highlights

Peter Kasson (University of Virginia) simulates atomic interactions of emerging viruses such as influenza, Zika, Ebola, to guide the development of new antiviral therapies.

Early access to Frontera allowed Kasson and his team to achieve preliminary results for their latest study.

Using Frontera, their simulations are proceeding two or three times faster than on the prior supercomputers they had access to.

Frontera also offers the opportunity to train young scientists on a cutting-edge system.
