About Us

Leading Location for Technology

MS2Discovery is located in the centre of Canada's Technology Triangle. The institute is surrounded by excellent infrastructure – in close proximity to many world-renowned high-tech companies, and a short drive from Toronto, the largest city in Canada. As a result, members have access to some of the most powerful supercomputer facilities in Canada via the Shared Hierarchical Academic Research Computing Network (SharcNET). SharcNET is an integral part of the national HPC platform for research, Compute Canada. The institute is also connected to ORION, Ontario's ultra-fast fibre optic network that supports and facilitates research, education, collaboration and innovation.

Experimental Labs and Infrastructure

Several members rely on experimental facilities and computational infrastructure for their research, including:

We have access to high RAM computers for visualization. We also developed in-house packages such as MULTIBAND-NANO, MTEI-LDN, and SCBP-QDs for complex problems in nanoscience and nanotechnology, as well as ISO-SMA for three-dimensional isogeometric analysis of complex materials with memory. Through SharcNET, we have access to GAUSSIAN, ADF, NAMD, LAMMPS, DLPOLY, ESPRESSO, TINKER, as well as MOLDEN and VMD for visualization of complex data. SharcNET also provides laboratory licences for Finite Element and other software for scientific and engineering applications.
