Center for Institutional Research Computing
The Center for Institutional Research Computing (CIRC) is coordinating many of WSU’s research computing efforts. CIRC’s goal is to propel WSU into a position of national leadership in the field of research computing by unifying the research community around shared and strategic institutional goals. By leveraging cyber-infrastructure resources across the WSU system, CIRC is creating a regional computing hub that enhances research across all colleges and campuses.

The Center for Institutional Research Computing at WSU is actively supporting the Folding@home project for research on diseases including COVID-19. Folding@home uses donated computer cycles from thousands of teams to perform distributed simulation of protein dynamics for research efforts focused on understanding how diseases work and how to design therapeutics to stop them. The Office of Research has donated a node with 20 cores from the Kamiak high-performance computing cluster to contribute to this effort.
