2017 Fed 100

Federal 100: Eric Stahlberg

Name: Eric A. Stahlberg
Title: Director of High Performance Computing Strategy
Agency/Company: Leidos Biomedical Research

Supercomputing for cancer research.

As director of high-performance computing at the Leidos-operated Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, Stahlberg seized the opportunity to combine the lab’s and the National Cancer Institute’s research with the computing power of the Energy Department. The new partnership has already led to three pilot programs that bring together scientists from multiple agencies with the goal of advancing cancer research and speeding new treatments into clinical practice.
