CompBioMed joins the LEXIS project Open Call
The CompBioMed Centre of Excellence has joined the Open Call of the LEXIS project, which is the starting point for a close collaboration. Thanks to the LEXIS platform, CompBioMed will transfer data more effectively and safely between computing centres. It can directly profit from the user-friendly and unified LEXIS approach to the usage of integrated HPC, Cloud and Edge resources with various computational techniques (Simulation, Big Data, AI) without expert knowledge. The collaboration will thus enable a broad range of users, from researchers to clinicians, to conveniently leverage and test multi-centre computing power for efficient biomedical computations. For example, results of ensemble HPC simulations can be processed on remote machine learning clusters to construct the next generation of simulations. Ultimately, LEXIS helps CompBioMed to collate and share data securely. The consortium will support CompBioMed with the training, technical and scientific assistance to use and validate the LEXIS platform. This collaboration will be a good opportunity for both projects to share their experience, and the consortia are looking forward to working together.
CompBioMed is a European Commission H2020 funded Centre of Excellence focused on the use and development of computational methods for biomedical applications. They have users within academia, industry and clinical environments and are working to train more people in the use of their products and methods. CompBioMed ran initially for 3 years from 2016 to 2019 and is now in it’s 2nd project running for 4 years to 2023. They have 16 Core Partners, 2 International Partners and a growing team of over 50 Associate Partners. A great introduction to their project can be found in the Virtual Humans film (https://youtu.be/1FvRSJ9W734).
