Abstract

This pilot project will implement a GPU test version of a simulation of cardiovascular control with focus on medullary sympathetic outflow and baroreflex.

Intellectual Merit

This is primarily a feasibility test.

Broader Impacts

Our current MATLAB based simulations modeling physiological processes would benefit from the acceleration potential provided by GPU/HPC computing.

Scale of Use

Beginning with a single GPU node, if successful, testing an MPI/CUDA version on the cluster.
