Research Development & Support Series: UC Infrastructure (9/25)

Time: September 25, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Location: Zoom

Target Audience: All faculty, post-docs, and research administrators

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

Knowing what infrastructure is available at UC can be a huge asset to your research throughout your career. Have you ever needed a piece of specialized equipment and knew it would not be feasible to include in your budget? Has your research outgrown your computer? Do you need secure data storage? Are you searching for collaborative research areas available at UC? Do you need help publishing through a repository?



 



If you answered yes to any of these questions, we may have some solutions for you. A panel of UC faculty and staff will provide overviews and ways to connect throughout UC’s infrastructure. We will be covering the following areas: UC Core Facilities (east and west campus), UC’s High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster, which is a part of the Advanced Research Computing (ARC) Initiative, UC’s Skin Science & Technology Collaborative (S2TC), which allows scientists to share their research and connect not only with each other but with industry partners, and UC Libraries, where faculty can receive support throughout the research lifecycle.

Please feel free to submit questions in advance to Research Development.
