Specifically, our goal is to seamlessly help faculty set up and execute their research programs. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Providing a state-of-the-art high-performance grid computing environment

  • Acquisition of data sets and access to various databases

  • Access to funding and external grants to support research activities

  • Highly skilled staff of part-time research assistants and full-time research coordinators/associates

All these activities help to facilitate and streamline faculty research, and that of the doctoral students working with them.
