Welcome to the Center for Research Informatics

Since 2011, the CRI has provided the Biological Sciences Division with computing resources, services, and expertise to enable world-class research.

We offer state-of-the-art technologies for working with clinical, translational, and basic science data – from acquisition and storage to analysis and sharing. Our resources are secure, standards-compliant, and open to all members of the BSD. We take pride in being research collaborators who can work with you through all the stages of a project.

In addition, we support research and education in the field of informatics. We work with the Institute for Translational Medicine and other partners on joint initiatives, and we are strong advocates for informatics within our research communities.

We hope you’ll take a look around, learn more about what we can do, and consider making the CRI your research partner. If you have any questions or want to talk more about a project, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
