3-D Rendering of Red Blood Cells Flowing Through Blood Vessel (Image 1)
April 22, 2013
Researchers at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) created a 3-D rendering of red blood cells flowing through a blood vessel in the heart to deliver oxygen to underlying muscle cells (myocytes). The Computational Modules in Science Teaching program creates innovative science tutorials using high-quality, biologically-realistic 3-D animations. The PSC provides university, government, and industrial researchers with access to several of the most powerful systems for high-performance computing, communications and data-handling available to scientists and engineers nationwide for unclassified research. PSC advances the state-of-the-art in high-performance computing, communications and informatics and offers a flexible environment for solving the largest and most challenging problems in computational science. As a leading partner in the XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) project, the National Science Foundation's program of coordinated cyberinfrastructure for education and research, PSC works with its XSEDE partners to harness the full range of information technologies to enable discovery in U.S. science and engineering.
