In the Public Health Applications Group at the PSC, modelers, software developers, and high-performance computing specialists apply high-performance computing resources to non-traditional applications in public health modeling, translating modeling tools to new and broader audiences for national and international public health decision support.

With extensive experience in the development of large-scale simulation software, deployment and utilization of cutting-edge computational hardware, data-intensive analysis and visualization, and the coupling of sophisticated software tools with accessible, user-focused services and interfaces, the Public Health Applications group works to empower public health decision-making to reduce the impact of a wide range of global public health threats including influenza, malaria, obesity, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
