Heriot Watt University chooses Oracle Cloud as the platform for its innovative research

When the multiphase and biological flows research group in School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University was awarded the OCRE cloud funding for their healthcare application research project, the OCRE framework mini competition mechanism was used to select a cloud platform, and having considered many other vendors, the research team selected Quistor and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as the host.

Principal investigator Ali Ozel, with support from Josh Williams, Jose Manuel Menendez Montes and Uwe Wolfram, proposed to use the power of cloud computing platforms to model aerosol drug deposition in patient lung airways. This very intensive particle modelling was not possible without the scalability and compute power of the cloud.
