Biomedical, translational and clinical research can and should take advantage of the continued exponential increases in the capacities of computing speed, data storage, networking bandwidth, and more broadly the advances in cyberinfrastructure (CI). Through a series of talks in CI and applications that aim to improve the treatment planning for heart disease through individual patient modeling, to build better tools for mesoscale modeling using advanced tomographic images of the cell, and to build complex computational pipelines for drug design and discovery, we hope to highlight state of the art tools from NBCR and those from the community we serve, towards the goal of personalized medicine through collaborative advances in cyberinfrastructure.
