Oak Ridge National Laboratory

US Department of Energy research facility in tennessee, usa

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is a US Department of Energy science and energy laboratory which conducts basic and applied research towards solving problems in energy and security. Four major areas of research include neutrons, computing, materials and nuclear science. Most of ORNL’s laboratories are operated under contract by UT-Battelle. ORNL’s missions are primarily for open research and are published in open literature. A small percentage of research at ORNL is classified or restricted under national security programs. ORNL also has user facilities available to researchers form other national labs, academia and industry.

The supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) was used to identify 77 small-molecule compounds as potential SARS-CoV-2 drugs to fight COVID-19, which are likely to bind the novel coronavirus main spike protein which could prevent it from infecting cells.
