Computer Simulations Reveal New Information about Key Protein’s Role in Treatment of Heart, Kidney and Other Diseases

“The massively parallel GPU resources available at SDSC’s Expanse were essential for our research as accessing the necessary length and time scales of the AT1 receptor activation with local computing resources was simply unfeasible. Together with PSC’s Anton2, these computational resources are providing unique structural insights into the physical phenomena that drive the activation and inactivation process for the AT1 receptor and allowing us to make groundbreaking discoveries at rates faster than ever.”
