About ATOM:  The Accelerating Therapeutics for Opportunities in Medicine (ATOM) Consortium, formed by a public-private Cooperative Research and Development Agreement among GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL, for DOE), Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR, for NCI), and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), aims to integrate the unique capabilities of high performance computing, emerging biotechnology, and preclinical data access to implement new computational tools and technologies, validated empirically, to impact current drug discovery paradigms. The success of ATOM has the potential to fundamentally transform the treatment landscape for cancer, build a modern drug discovery platform for other diseases, and create the technology and computing infrastructure to enable the precision medicine era. Further, ATOM seeks to build a new model for collaborative, cross-disciplinary team science between the public and private sectors in the area of preclinical drug discovery, for the benefit of cancer patients, especially those for which there is currently no effective therapy.

About the FNL-ATOM Fellowship Program: The goal of the ATOM Fellowship program is to provide support for biomedical early-career scientists incorporating computational technologies into their research and concurrently providing computing/data early-career scientists the opportunity to apply their skills to real-world applications and increase collaborations between these communities. We believe this type of trans-disciplinary exposure will help fill a significant gap in the biomedical workforce and will continue to leverage the groundwork laid by academic and other institutions that have begun to build the related programs that are needed to meet new, complex challenges in biomedical/cancer research.
