Center for Institutional Research Computing
The Center for Institutional Research Computing (CIRC) provides cutting-edge high-performance computing (HPC) resources and expertise to advance computational and data-intensive research across WSU. CIRC’s goal is to propel WSU into a position of national leadership in research computing by providing state-of-the-art HPC hardware and software infrastructure and a world-class team that supports its effective utilization and fosters computational literacy. Our services include support, guidance, and training in the use of the HPC cluster, application development and deployment, and investing in nodes and storage.

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.
