Using computers to fight disease

In this short animation, John Hengeveld, marketing director for high performance computing at Intel, shares his story of undergoing an appendectomy and learning that, as a result of a burst appendix, a rare and cancer-causing material was now circulating in his body. Currently, there are few good treatment options for his condition, but Hengeveld hopes that by harnessing computers to perform scientific research this could change. Watch the video to learn how computers can help researchers accelerate the scientific process by simulating biomedical experiments to develop new methods of fighting disease.
