Portuguese scientists participate in project with supercomputers

A project developed by scientists from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto (FCUP) is one of the 40 initiatives approved by the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium.

Led by Maria João Ramos, a professor at FCUP, the researchers have a mission to discover which drugs are effective against the enzyme that allows SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, to survive in a human.

The COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium was created in March by the US Government and includes scientific laboratories, universities and companies such as NASA, IBM, Amazon, Google, Microsoft and HP.

The consortium currently has more than 30 supercomputers with more than 420 petaflops to quickly help researchers around the world find ways to fight COVID-19.
