Institute for Computational Molecular Science


ICMS plays a central role in high performance computing for research across Temple University. Research applications enabled by ICMS-operated hardware cover a large variety of topics: bio-molecular modeling and drug discovery, computational materials design, computational and quantum chemistry, applied mathematics, high-energy and particle physics, statistics and data analytics, bioinformatics, genomics, geoinformatics, functional magnetic resonance imaging and more.

High performance computing

The HPC team in ICMS provides expertise on hardware, applications and training, while ICMS researchers are experienced in making extensive use of HPC resources (local and at national supercomputing centers) for advanced research. Led by ICMS Associate Director Axel Kohlmeyer, the HPC team is Temple’s main provider of high-performance research computing facilities and expertise. The core responsibility of the HPC team is to procure, deploy and operate shared central HPC resources that are available to all members of the Temple community with a justified need for advanced computational resources.
