Resources, Groups, and Training

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) offers a wide array of data resources, user groups, and training for researchers in the Scientific Computing division. A selection of these is listed below.

Consulting Computational Sciences

Domain-specific PhD scientists with interdisciplinary computing expertise help researchers to make efficient and effective use of the resources. Please contact hpchelp@hpc.mssm.edu with any questions.

Education and Training

We offer a diverse array of education and training events including graduate classes in Scientific Computing, such as, Intro to Scientific Computing (BSR1015), and workshops with academic and industrial partners.

World Trade Center Health Program Data Center

The World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP) Data Center at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is the sole entity in charge of collecting, managing, analyzing, performing public health surveillance, and preparing for research using the physical and mental health, exposure, occupational and socioeconomic data generated by the WTCHP General Responder Cohort Clinical Centers of Excellence via annual medical monitoring examinations of non-FDNY World Trade Center (WTC) rescue and recovery effort workers and volunteers.

Minerva User Group and Training

The Minerva User Group meets monthly to review computational and data usage statistics and to provide advice on operational policies and plans. All scientists and researchers who use Minerva are encouraged to participate, and the slides and minutes from the meeting are posted on the internal Scientific Computing website.

Computational Scientists in the Scientific Computing provide both beginning and advanced training classes on how to use Minerva effectively and efficiently. The training classes are occur monthly and can be taught by special request.

Please contact hpchelp@mssm.edu with any questions.

Advisory Board

The Scientific Computing division has regular communications with advisory and user committees that provide guidance and feedback for each of the departments. The boards are comprised of ISMMS faculty and provide high-level advice on overall direction. The user committees review usage and provide advice on operational policies and plans. All users are encouraged to participate in the committees.
