Our mission is to accelerate scientific discovery at Mount Sinai by providing researchers with a scalable high performance computational and data infrastructure along with human expertise for efficient and effective use of these resources.
To help accomplish the mission the Scientific Computing division consists of three groups:
- High Performance Computing (HPC),
- Mount Sinai Data Warehouse (MSDW),
- Research Data Services
Collectively, the Scientific Computing groups serve over 2,000 users at 150 institutions in 21 countries. The HPC resources consist of 12,672 compute cores, 160 terabytes of flash and 20 petabytes of parallel file system storage. MSDW is a collection of clinical, financial and operational data from over 20 data sources at the Mount Sinai Hospital from 2003. It is updated daily with data from >8 million patients, >2 billion facts and >4,000 data points per patient. Research Data Services designs and maintains electronic data capture system for clinical trials; and is home to the eRAP Rapid Database Generator (eRAP RDG).
