On creating high-profile applications for researchers
“Researchers are always pushing boundaries,” said Ken Hofgesang. “They frequently hit certain roadblocks, whether it’s high-performance computing or high-capacity storage. We come up with innovative ways to help them.”
Ken Hofgesang’s SAIC team is responsible for developing several custom software apps crucial to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
One of the said applications is now being used at the National Advisory Mental Health Council members in drafting recommendations and determining which extramural research studies are to receive funding.
This very high-profile application is mission-critical to the NIMH and their ability to fund grants. The custom software helps in reviewing intramural lab research and tracks patient’s safety in internal clinical trials.
