Send email to with any questions, problems, or concerns. If your computing needs are not addressed by the software and compute resources of the NIH HPC Systems, or you are interested in a new application, let us know.

In general, it's a bad idea to send email directly to a particular staff member. If the person is away, your problem may take longer to be resolved. It is preferable to send email to the staff address above, or call the NIH IT Service Desk and ask to be transferred to the HPC staff.
