As a research support unit specializing in the science of information, we support research at all stages with services such as IT infrastructure design, software development and grant application assistance. Led by Christopher P. Barnes, our multidisciplinary informatics team will help you save time in choosing the tools and processes needed for your research, use tools that are in compliance with all regulatory requirements, and get standards-based results that are compatible with a variety of systems.

Data Management

We provide tools for data mining, analysis and visualization that will best support your research. To manage and integrate your findings and results with data, we make use of existing tools such as content and document management systems. Your results will be compatible with a variety of systems from the moment you collect them.

Grants & Compliance

We craft informatics components and data sharing plans to strengthen grant proposals by leveraging not only our own strengths, but also those of UF Health. We work with both internal and external-facing web teams to propose data sharing mechanisms that are compliant with all regulations, and as a national leader in the informatics community, we share our work and the work of our clients at national conferences and to collaborating peer institutions.

Software Development

We identify the best software system for your needs, whether that means using an existing system or building a new one. Our development team designs, implements and maintains custom applications to meet your requirements for finding and managing the information you need for your research.
