Information Systems (IS) is a shared resource providing integrated information systems in support of clinical and basic science biomedical research.
The resource provides infrastructure, personnel, technical support, assistance and consultation in four areas: networks, databases, servers, and web applications.
The goal of the resource is to provide comprehensive computational support to enable researchers to use technology in the most efficient manner possible to accomplish their research goals. The resource provides database and applications development, web site support, and server support.
In addition to network server support, CCIS supports large scale servers and software, as well as high performance computational platforms, for the Biostatistics Shared Resource and the Bioinformatics Shared Resource.
This group supports the informatics needs of a variety of research areas and programs. IS is working closely with the Duke Health Technology Solutions, the Duke Translational Medicine Institute, and the Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy to integrate clinical data with research data.
Support for the resource is provided through a combination of grant support, chargeback and institutional funding. At the national level, IS has been a leader in the development of software tools and standards within the caBIG™ program, contributing to several cornerstone applications and projects.
