Research Informatics is here for you
The Research Informatics team will be leading the initiative to directly interact with the research community and learn their technology needs so that DGIT may plan towards its implementation. This initiative is led by members of the same team that formerly made up the Research Enablement team.
The Research Informatics team will serve as the bridge between the research community and DGIT to ensure we are able to continue building a more robust technological infrastructure for a vibrant, ever changing research environment. Their interactions with research faculty, academic units and appropriate committees will help inform DGIT teams to enhance our service offerings to ensure we meet the data access, compute, storage and other research tool needs within the UCLA Health Sciences schools.
