BLOOMINGTON -

The Jetstream project at Research Technologies at Indiana University has received more funding from the National Science Foundation. The $1.3 million in additional funding will help finance the Jetstream cloud system through 2020. The project has received $13.7 million since 2014.

The user-friendly cloud environment was created for researchers and students to gain access to data analysis resources on demand.

“This extension in operations represents a major win for the national science and engineering communities,” said David Y. Hancock, director of advanced computing systems in Research Technologies and Jetstream principal investigator. “Jetstream has supported many long-term projects, and now researchers can focus on their science rather than have to worry about how or where to find the resources that they need.”

The project was developed by researchers from Cornell University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Arizona, University of Chicago, Texas Advanced Computing Center at the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas at Austin. Over 2,500 researchers from across the country have used the system, including Franco Pestilli, a professor in IU's Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. His Brain-Life project depends on Jetstream to help psychologists understand the human brain and behavior, including research into Alzheimer's disease.

“We are now entering the era of big data neuroscience, and the core of Brain-Life runs on Jetstream,” Pestilli said.

SB-12 then made its way to the full Senate. Preceded by a lengthy deliberation by the Senate’s Republican caucus, the Senate voted 33-16 in favor of a watered-down...
