NBCR - National Biomedical Computation Resource was founded in 1994 to facilitate interaction among biomedical scientists and promote development of computing power at the national supercomputer centers. Since that time, NBCR has led development of new technology in computing to benefit the biomedical research community and bridge the gap between emerging information technologies and NIH-funded science across diverse biomedical research areas.

NBCR’s vision centers on the development of tools and technologies that enable models to bridge across diverse scales of biological organization that range from molecules to organs systems to gain quantitative understanding of biological function and phenotypes, while enabling biomedical science to take full advantage of all types and sources of relevant data.
