Core Computational Technology

The Core Computational Technology research group, also known as CCT, is shared between WID and its partner the Morgridge Institute for Research.

CCT develops a cyberinfrastructure that provides high throughput computing and fosters collaborative work with global partners.

Miron Livny, a UW–Madison professor of computer sciences in the College of Letters and Science and director of the UW Center for High Throughput Computing (CHTC), provides the advanced computing tools and infrastructure necessary to facilitate the work of scientists in both institutes. Livny, who specializes in distributed computing, collaborates with researchers around the world to advance computer and data-intensive science.

CCT along with CHTC bring together a unique ensemble of scientists whose goals are to stimulate new discoveries by providing scientists with effective and dependable access to a broad range of state-of-the-art computing capabilities. By dramatically increasing their computing throughput, scientists who use CCT’s open facility have greatly increased the size and complexity of the problems they study. As leading research institutes, WID and Morgridge bring together the next generation of students, educators and researchers in human health and in distributed computing to jointly address the frontiers of scientific computing.
