KINGSTON

Kingston University Higher Education Corporation

Kingston University London is an innovative modern research led University which has four campuses and five faculties catering for over 23,000 students. The largest of these Faculties in terms of staff and student numbers is the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing (SEC) which isa recent amalgamation of three former Faculties. The SEC Faculty has eight schools:
Pharmacy and Chemistry, Computing Information Sciences, Mathematics, Life Science, Geology, Geography and Environment, Civil Engineering, Mechanical and Automotive Engineering and Aerospace and Aircraft Engineering. SEC is strategically focussed on inter-disciplinary research and researchers in SEC collaborate widely, within the Faculty, across Faculties as well as with a wide range of national and international partners, academic and industrial.

Kingston University has affiliation with a large teaching hospital (St George’s Hospital) and excellent strategic partnerships with healthcare providers across London and the UK which has enabled collaborative links with large databases. This complements the development within Kingston University of strategic links between the Medical Information and Network Technologies (MINT) Research Centre and the Interdisciplinary Hub for the Study of Health and Age related Conditions (IhSHA). MINT has received a number of prestigious grants totalling over £2 million and IhSHA receives support from the EU, leading charities and research councils, which has exceeded £1million in the last two years. The interdisciplinary partnerships across the Research Centres have resulted in successful research teams with complementary skills in areas of mobile healthcare and telemedicine.

The University invests heavily in research infrastructure in the sciences and computing and has recently completed construction of a major laboratory for interdisciplinary research between the biological, pharmaceutical and computer sciences. The facility has state of the art instrumentation for proteomic and genomic analyses, a tissue culture laboratory and computing suite which houses high spec computers for complex analytical work. A range of other laboratories that support life sciences and pharmaceutical research accommodate extensive modern suites for pathogen research, molecular microbiology/GM, natural products analysis, cell signalling, histology, immunology, and microscopy/image analysis. Major new equipment includes 400 and 600 MHz NMR Bruker spectrometers, mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS, ICP-AES, 3x LC-MS/MS, 2 x GC-MS) laser infrared microscope, laser Raman spectrophotometer, X-ray diffractometer, high-resolution microscopes (SEM,  TEM,  CLSM),  flow cytometers/FACS, BodPod, and Ion-Torrent sequencer for genomic analysis..

MAXELER

MAXELER Technologies

Maxeler provides complete platforms for High Performance Computing using dataflow supercomputing. By enabling applications to offload computation to dedicated Dataflow Engines (DFEs), Maxeler’s dataflow computers deliver 20-30x  improvement  in  performance/W  and  performance/space  with  respect to  conventional  systems  for  particular  applications.  Dataflow  Engines  are optimized for “Big data” applications, with pipelined hardware architectures optimized for applying repetitive computation to massive datasets with full in-memory processing. For example, a rack of Maxeler MPC-X nodes provides over 15TB of memory.

Maxeler provides complete application platforms, which consist of:

 Application: Maxeler teams consist of scientists and engineers who work on applications across a wide set of domains,  ranging  from  life  sciences  to  oil  exploration.  Maxeler  provides  complete  applications  as  well  as application  libraries  which  allow  domain  experts  to  easily  create  new  applications  which  exploit the performance of dataflow systems.

 Compilers and management software: MaxelerOS manages resources, scheduling and data movement within a heterogeneous  HPC  environment.  MaxCompiler  provides  a  Java-based  programming  infrastructure  for dataflow programming. 

 Hardware:  Maxeler  hardware  systems  integrate  dataflow  engines,  custom  1U  nodes  and  conventional  CPU nodes  with  networking  and  local  storage.  Balancing  hardware  resources  in  the  data  center  based  on application requirements removes bottlenecks and significantly improves cost of computing.

 Operating from its headquarters and main R&D facilities in London, Maxeler has a strong record of research and development  of  state-of-the-art  science  and  technology.  Through  its  university  program,  the  company  also  has research relationships with well over 100 universities around the world.
