The New Mexico Consortium
|The New Mexico Consortium (NMC) is a non-profit corporation formed by the three New Mexico research universities to advance scientific research and education. The NMC pursues joint research initiatives with Los Alamos National Laboratory in Advanced Computing, Plants, Bio-medical Technology and Engineering and Modeling & Analysis. The NMC executes innovative models for operating collaborative research across our partner institutions; the ability to assemble and integrate inter-related but highly specialized research capabilities distinguishes the NMC partnership. There are many ways to Get Involved.||
Our Plant Biology initiative performs basic research with impacts on sustainable energy production, food security and climate induced ecological change.
The NMC Advanced Computing initiative addresses the unsolved problems that stand in the way of achieving exascale computing.
NMC's Modeling and Analysis initiative uses what we know about a complex system to inform models that predict the behavior of this system and spans research programs in Climate, Synthetic Cognition, Social Modeling, Quantum Computing, Space Science, and Economics.
Our Biomedical Technology and Engineering iniative develops bio-analytical technologies, novel materials and biological signatures for use in health care.
PRObE is an NSF funded super computing facility that gives computer science researchers access to large scale computing resources and puts New Mexico at the center of Advanced Computing.
The NMC has a unique ability to perform cross-disciplinary research capable of fully characterizing cell function. This ability positions our Plant Biology and Biomedical initiatives to deliver cutting-edge, basic and translational research.
The NMC's Biological Laboratory includes general use wet laboratory facilities, specialized laboratories, and a 4,000 square foot research greenhouse.
