High-Performance Computing Services (HPC)

World-class Resources for Enabling Innovation in Scientific Research

By providing NIH’s Intramural Research Program (IRP) investigators with state-of-the-art, high-performance computing resources, we make it possible for researchers to pursue questions that were once beyond their reach.



Conduct large-scale data analyses with Biowulf, one of the TOP500 project's most powerful supercomputers and the world’s most powerful supercomputer dedicated to advancing biomedical research. 

Data Transfer & Management for Researchers

Move, sync, and share large amounts of data within NIH and with other institutions using Globus.

Tools & Programs for Researchers

Access hundreds of applications for genomics, molecular and structural biology, mathematical analysis, image analysis, deep learning, and other research areas.

In 2018, NIH researchers from almost 500 labs performed biomedical calculations that used more than 1 billion CPU hours on the Biowulf cluster.
