HITS is New Associate Partner of CompBioMed Project

28. October 2016

Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS), represented by its Molecular and Cellular Modeling Group (MCM), led by Professor Rebecca Wade, has joined CompBioMed as an Associate Partner.

CompBioMed is a user-driven Centre of Excellence in Computational Biomedicine, to nurture and promote the uptake and exploitation of high performance computing within the biomedical modelling community. The user communities come from academia, industry and clinical practice. The project will run for three years from 1st October 2016.

The project will support and facilitate modelling and simulation activities, and provide education and training for a diverse set of communities. It will target research scientists from physical, computer and biomedical sciences, software and infrastructure developers, from industry, and medical end users, including clinicians.  It will therefore invest in community building to spread knowledge, tools and best practice to students and researchers across this domain.

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
