(Press-News.org) WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $30 million in funding for three projects to increase scientific productivity and discoveries across DOE light source, neutron source, and high-performance computing and networking facilities.
The DOE Office of Science provides researchers with access to the most advanced tools of modern science. The awarded projects are focused on developing the computational mathematics and scientific computing research needed to accelerate discovery and innovation at DOE’s X-ray and neutron source user facilities.
“Scientific research is becoming ever more dependent on complex data analyses and very large datasets,” said Harriet Kung, DOE Office of Science Deputy Director for Science Programs. “These three projects will enhance data analytics capabilities at our user facilities and help fuel discoveries in biotechnology, advanced materials for energy and microelectronics, and more.”
The national laboratory-led collaborative projects are:
A center for advanced mathematics for energy research applications led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to develop the algorithms, software, autonomous workflows, and real-time analysis at the edge for next-generation scientific user facilities.
A research project led by Argonne National Laboratory that addresses the technical challenges and tools needed to enhance the optimization, prediction, and experimentation capabilities at science facilities.
A collaborative project led by the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center that focuses on the testing, delivery, and overall productive use of the research and development prototypes from all three of these projects.
The projects were selected by a competitive peer review under the DOE National Laboratory Program Announcement for Advanced Scientific Computing Research for DOE User Facilities. The multi-disciplinary projects are supported by the Office of Science programs in Advanced Scientific Computing Research and Basic Energy Sciences. The projects include multi-institutional teams, led by individual national laboratories with partners from other national laboratories.
Total funding is $30 million for projects lasting up to five years in duration, with $6 million in Fiscal Year 2023 dollars and outyear funding contingent on congressional appropriations. The list of projects and more information can be found on the Advanced Scientific Computing Research and Basic Energy Sciences program homepages.
Selection for award negotiations is not a commitment by DOE to issue an award or provide funding. Before funding is issued, DOE and the applicants will undergo a negotiation process, and DOE may cancel negotiations and rescind the selection for any reason during that time.

Internet-based therapy may help depression in people with multiple sclerosis
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Major depressive disorder affects up to 50% of all individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) at some point during their lifetime and can lead to lower quality of life, greater disease progression and higher mortality. Patients enrolled in a phase 3 trial of an internet-delivered cognitive behavioral therapy program modified specifically for MS showed a large drop in depressive symptoms compared to a control group. The online program may offer an effective and easily accessible way to manage depression and lead to better quality of life for persons with ...
UNF receives substantial legislative funding to combat nursing shortage
The University of North Florida has been awarded matching State legislative funding of nearly $800K based upon the School of Nursing's (SON) successful healthcare partnerships with Mayo Clinic, HCA Healthcare South Atlantic Division and Baptist Health. The Florida legislative budget allowance and Linking Industry to Nursing Education (LINE) Fund is contributing to nursing program enhancements including growing scholarships for UNF nursing students, opening the UNF MedNexus Deerwood Simulation Center, developing cohorts of undergraduate nursing students in the UNF accelerated prelicensure program and enhancing the UNF-HCA Simulation Center experience. This ...
NIH study identifies foods to help pregnant people optimize intake of key nutrients
Most pregnant people in the U.S. are at risk of not getting enough of six nutrients important to a healthy pregnancy—vitamin A, vitamin D, folate, calcium, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids—from foods alone. Yet finding a combination of foods and supplements that delivers the right amounts of these nutrients without exceeding calorie recommendations or safety limits can be challenging. In a new study published in The Journal of Nutrition, researchers from NIH’s Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Program wanted to find low-calorie, nutrient-rich foods that could boost nutrient intake, much like dietary supplements do. They calculated ...
Carnegie Mellon University launches WebAssembly Research Center
Carnegie Mellon University has launched the WebAssembly Research Center to harness the potential of the open-source platform. The internet isn't just the internet anymore. Increasingly, users turn to the web to stream videos, play games, shop, edit photos, collaborate with colleagues and more. Those users expect the internet to work seamlessly on everything from a computer to a smartphone. To make that happen means juggling code in different languages written for different platforms. WebAssembly (Wasm) was created to do just that. "Ultimately, all software could one day run on WebAssembly," said Ben Titzer, director ...
Racial discrimination among teens linked to unhealthy stress hormone levels
Audio Scientists already know that the stress caused by racial discrimination is related to a host of chronic health conditions, but less is known about which types of discrimination are most harmful. To answer that question, researchers at the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology surveyed 100 adolescents aged 13-19, who had obesity or who were overweight, about their experiences with institutional, peer, educational and cumulative discrimination. They measured their salivary cortisol ...
Psychological aspects of erectile dysfunction deserve more attention, health scientists say
Washington, DC (September 27, 2023) -- Personality traits and mental health problems are among the factors linked to erectile dysfunction (ED), a condition that affects up to 80% of men over the age of 60. But researchers often overlook these psychological causes and their treatments in favor of biological components of ED, according to a new article in Current Directions in Psychological Science. In a review of existing research, Mark S. Allen, Alex M. Wood (Leeds Trinity University), and David Sheffield ...
Ochsner Health named to Newsweek’s America’s Greatest Workplaces for Parents and Families 2023
NEW ORLEANS– Ochsner Health was recently named one of the 2023 America’s Greatest Workplaces for Parents and Families by Newsweek and market-data research firm Plant-A Insights Group. A large-scale employer study based on over 224,000 company reviews aided in selecting 800 companies and organizations nationwide for the inaugural list. “It is an honor to be named among the greatest workplaces in the nation for parents and families. Our top priority at Ochsner is to put patients first, and we know employees are at their best when they have a healthy work-life balance directly correlating with the high-quality care offered to our patients ...
Your Zoom background might influence the first impression you make
In a new study, participants tended to judge faces appearing against backgrounds featuring houseplants or bookcases as more trustworthy and competent than faces with a living space or a novelty image behind them. Gender and facial expression also appeared to influence judgments. Research led by Paddy Ross, Abi Cook and Meg Thompson at Durham University, UK is publishing in the open-access journal PLOS ONE on September 27, 2023. Prior research has demonstrated that first impressions can make a real difference in people’s lives; for example, ...
Lack of financial planning linked to higher risk of death in US and UK
People who are less socioeconomically advantaged have lower life expectancies, with a number of possible underlying mechanisms, such as less ability to spend on healthcare or the psychological effects of economic inequality. Prior research also shows that many households struggle to financially prepare for old age. However, few researchers have explored whether forward-thinking financial decision making is itself associated with lower risk of death. To address this potential link, Gladstone and Hundtofte analyzed data spanning a 22-year period for 11,478 older people living in the US and ...
