About Us

The Advanced Biomedical Computing Center (ABCC) is a part of the Information Systems Program at SAIC-Frederick, Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR). The ABCC provides technology development, scientific consultation, collaboration and training, and high-performance computing support to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists and staff.
