Under the agreement, the organisations will exchange staff for work on specific projects of mutual interest with the goal of sharing and furthering the scientific and technical know-how of both institutions. Both centers share a common technological focus, having selected Crax XT supercomputers as thier primary systems after throrough review of various systems.
The MOU, signed in January 2008, capitalises on the the organisational and operational similaritites of the Swiss and US computing centers.
CSCS is the largest supercomputing center in Switzerland. It is managed by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich). NERSC is the US Department of Energy’s flagship facility for computational science.

With ultracold chemistry, researchers get a first look at exactly what happens during a chemical reaction
The coldest chemical reaction in the known universe took place in what appears to be a chaotic mess of lasers. The appearance deceives: Deep within that...
Abnormal scarring is a serious threat resulting in non-healing chronic wounds or fibrosis. Scars form when fibroblasts, a type of cell of connective tissue, reach wounded skin and deposit plugs of extracellular matrix. Until today, the question about the exact anatomical origin of these fibroblasts has not been answered. In order to find potential ways of influencing the scarring process, the team of Dr. Yuval Rinkevich, Group Leader for Regenerative Biology at the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease at Helmholtz Zentrum München, aimed to finally find an answer. As it was already known that all scars derive from a fibroblast lineage expressing the Engrailed-1 gene - a lineage not only present in skin, but also in fascia - the researchers intentionally tried to understand whether or not fascia might be the origin of fibroblasts.

Research from a leading international expert on the health of the Great Lakes suggests that the growing intensity and scale of pollution from plastics poses serious risks to human health and will continue to have profound consequences on the ecosystem.
