Group Meeting Schedule

We have regular ICCM PK group meetings in the ICCM/NICKS Small Conference Room. Participants include Dr. Lin’s group members, Dr. Gehring and her group members, as well as Dr. Riviere. From May 2017, Dr. Riviere joins our group meetings via Skype. Most of Dr. Lin’s group members are co-advised by Dr. Gehring and/or Dr. Riviere. We kindly appreciate Dr. Gehring and Dr. Riviere for offering mentorship to our trainees. Besides regular group meetings, individual mentoring meetings are also available as needed.

Our Computational Environment

Our lab has cluster computational infrastructure that is capable of performing highly advanced, complex biomedical computational modeling. Our lab is equipped with a Computer Server with Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-4650 v3 (4 X 12 core processors) and 192 GB installed memory. Lab members remotely access to the server through their desktop computers. Distance students who enroll in Dr. Lin’s class may also access to the server upon approval.

Further computational capabilities are provided by workstations housed on-site, including:

  • 4-core 3.4 GHz Intel® Core™ i7-6700 CPU processor, 32GB of RAM
  • 4-core 3.6 GHz Intel® Xeon® E5-1620 CPU processor, 26GB of RAM
  • 4-core 3.4 GHz Intel® Core™ i7-3770 CPU processor, 16GB of RAM
  • 4-core 3.4 GHz Inter® Core™ i5-3570 CPU processor, 8GB of RAM
  • 4-core 3.4 GHz Intel® Core™ i7-3770 CPU processor, 16GB of RAM
  • 4-core 3.4 GHz Intel® Core™ i5-4670 CPU processor, 16GB of RAM
