Victorian life sciences researchers are set to benefit from a partnership between the University of Melbourne and IBM announced today by the Premier of Victoria, the Hon. John Brumby.
Date: 11 February 2010
Location: Sidney Myer Asia Centre
The partnership will dramatically increase the research and
supercomputing capabilities of the University of Melbourne-led
Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI). The Victorian
Government and the University established the $100 million VLSCI in
2008 to strengthen the research capabilities and outcomes of Victorian
life sciences research. Under the partnership, IBM will establish an
IBM Collaboratory with leading life sciences and computational
specialists at the University of Melbourne.
It is the first time IBM has established a collaboratory in life
sciences anywhere in the world and it is the first IBM research
collaboratory in the southern hemisphere.
