Michelle Sahai of the Weill Cornell Medical College uses the XSEDE-allocated Stampede supercomputer to study the dopamine transporter. Stampede is ranked #7 on the Top 500 list of supercomputers.

Her research links altered dopamine signaling and dopamine transporter function to neurological and psychiatric diseases including early-onset Parkinsonism and ADHD.

Sahai's supercomputer simulations of the dopamine transporter are also being used to study the effects of cocaine abuse.

Stampede is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through award ACI-1134872. XSEDE is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through award ACI-1053575.
