Information for Researchers
If you are unfamiliar with Information Technology services on the medical campus, we suggest you begin with the overview in the Information for Newcomers page. If you have a problem or questions of any kind you can always begin with the Help Desk. It's open 24/7. Use the Get Help form, send email to email@example.com or call 305-243-5999.
Data storage and hosting
Our secure data center facilities can provide a fully-protected place to store your research data, including secure off-site storage of backup copies. These facilities and resources are able free for most applications. (When specialized computing resources must be acquired, there may be a chargeback structure.)
For an overview of security and management issues for research data collections, and the services available to address them, see the guide to protecting research data collections. Please contact the Data Center Services Manager, Luis Necuze at 305-243-5999 for additional information.
Wired and wireless network connectivity is provided to almost all locations on campus. If you have specialized networking needs for your research -- e.g., high speed connectivity, sharing data with off-site collaborators -- contact the Network Engineering team for assistance.
Off-campus access to the network is also provided through a variety of means -- see the network access and data storage links.
Hardware and software
The Procurement group can assist you in selecting appropriate computer resources to support your research. We can provide Apple, Dell and Lenovo hardware at discount prices. Site-licensed software is available for your use (and can be downloaded from this site or remotely installed by the Help Desk). We can usually provide other software at discount prices.
For an overview of considerations in selecting computing equipment, see the guide to choosing the right equipment. Visit the Technology Store or contact the Procurement team for additional information and assistance.
Calder Library (medical campus) and Richter Library (Gables campus) maintain extensive electronic collections of journals and databases to support your research. You can access Calder's E-Resources and Richter's E-Resources both on-campus and remotely. (Click on the links to learn more.).
Grants administration and research protocols
Protocols involving human subjects are handled by the Human Subjects Research Office. HSRO also monitors compliance with training requirements for investigators, such as that provided by the CITI program.
Protocols involving human subjects must be approved by one of the University's IRBs. All such protocols are being moved to an online submission and tracking system managed by the HSRO, called eProst. If you are involved with cancer studies, you should also be aware of PIPES.
Protocols involving animal subjects are handled by the Animal Care and Use Committee. Go to the ACUC Web site to learn about protocol submission and tracking for such protocols.
