The projects include developing technology for more accurate mammograms (Oxford University), advanced supply chain practices (Michigan State, Arizona State, Penn State and University College, Dublin) and simulated protein folding (Columbia University). Under the program, IBM provides equipment and other assistance, and enjoys access to the results of the research.
