Welcome to Legnaro National Laboratories (LNL)

lnl flagsLNL is one of the four national labs of the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN). The mission is to perform basic research in nuclear physics and nuclear-astrophysics, together with applications of nuclear technologies.

Around 700 scientists from all over the world are involved in the ongoing research programs. Every day about 250 people work at LNL, half of them being INFN employees (physicists, engineers, technicians....) the remaining half coming from universities and research institutions in Italy and abroad. The laboratory budget is nearly 20 Million Euro per year, half for handling and research, half for personnel. Strength points are the development of particle accelerators and of nuclear radiation detectors, and the technology transfer.

Biomolecular simulations and urgent computing:

the Italian challenge at COVID19 and the INFN role

Sibylla Biotech, spin-off of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and of the Universities of Trento and Perugia, is working on the identification of an anti COVID-19 therapy, with a unique technology that studies the behavior of proteins in a way completely new and quickly. For this purpose, since 30 March 2020, the INFN change destination of about 30,000 computing units (cores) that are working in parallel in 8 INFN data centers with the CNAF Computing center in Bologna as the leader. The data centers of the operating units of Pisa, Rome, Naples, Milan, Bari, National Laboratories of Frascati, CNAF and the Tier2 distributed National Laboratories of Legnaro-section of Padua are involved. Figure shows part of the distributed data center in National Laboratories of Legnaro-section of Padua
