Parallela Logo set_w_long

Our group was recently approved to be part of the Parallella University Program (PUP). The goal of the program is to support the academic research on an inexpensive and open source massively parallel computing hardware.  Research groups part of the program were evaluated based on the:

  • Potential impact of proposed research or education program;
  • Track record within the area of parallel computing;
  • Level of openness in journal and source code publication.

The Parallella University Program will seek to maximize diversity both in terms of research areas and geographical representation. Participates in the program will be provided with free hardware and development software as described in the Parallella University Program Agreement.  The Parallella University Program runs on a calendar year basis and ends on December 31.

Our group is part of a grant of $25K for student exchange between United States, Latin America and the Caribbean



Our group is part of a collaboration between Universidad Mayor and Montclair State University (US) that received a grant to encourage the exchange of undergraduate students between United States, Caribbean and Latin America. The grant of US$ 25,000 is part of the “100,000 Strong in the Americas Initiative” that was launched earlier this year by President Obama and is supported by Partners of America, the Department of State and NAFSA (Association of International Educators), to help educational institutions in the United States and across the Americas develop and strengthen their programs that offer students expanded study abroad opportunities.

The program will introduce students from both universities to current biotechnology research and techniques in the United States and Chile. Also, they will receive a cultural insertion into local culture in both countries.
