Molecular Staging Molecular Staging is addressing this demand with a portfolio of products and services based on technologies that are transforming the detection and measurement of both proteins and nucleic acids.

    The Center for Theory and Simulation in Science and Engineering at Cornell University (Cornell Theory Center) was established as an interdisciplinary research center with the mission to provide a national focal point for using high performance computing as a tool to accelerate the solution of scientific, engineering, and industrial problems, while at the same time advancing the basic and applied research that underlies that universal tool. High performance computing is an essential component of contemporary scientific research and engineering practice, providing a powerful and universal means of greatly extending the traditional methods of experimentation, theoretical analysis, and modeling. The use of high performance computing profoundly amplifies our technical imagination, because it enables us to explore new and unexpected avenues of reality and to visualize them in dramatic ways. For precisely these reasons, it is also an important vehicle for technological change, playing a key role in advancing the United States’ international competitive position and in protecting and improving the quality of life.

    Since its founding in 1985, the Cornell Theory Center has been a leader in national and international high performance computing. Through partnerships with government, industry, and other academic institutions, the center and its users continue to advance the limits of high performance computing and to extend its application. Scientists and engineers advance and refine their research using the resources of the Cornell Theory Center. Incorporating the feedback of these researchers allows the computer industry to improve supercomputing technology itself, thus fueling a cycle of progress that has reached levels unimaginable ten years ago. Such rapid developments in computational technologies contribute to the more effective approaches to problem solving, to new and improved products and services, and to an enhanced overall national competitiveness.


    Growing from a small base of Cornell users in 1985, the Cornell Theory Center’s research community now includes more than 2,300 users, representing more than 150 institutions nationwide. The research engages virtually every scientific and engineering discipline, from simulations of the Earth’s vibrations to visual imaging of Jupiter’s clouds; from the dynamics of ecosystems to the dynamics of the world economy; from discovering pulsars to analyzing plasma. More than 500 research projects from a variety of disciplines—including biological, behavioral, and social sciences; computer and information sciences; engineering; geosciences; and mathematical and physical sciences—are conducted using Cornell Theory Center resources.

    The Theory Center receives major funding from the National Science Foundation and New York State. Additional funding comes from the Advanced Projects Research Agency, the National Institutes of Health, IBM Corporation, and other members of the center’s Corporate Research Institute.
