Being able to reproduce the research and also reuse the data for other research projects has become an issue with federal funding agencies. To improve the management of your research, the University now has research management tools to assist you – and they are FREE to use.
- Emulab is a testbed for research on networked computer systems. Emulab was developed by the Flux Research Group, School of Computing. It provides researchers with computing, storage, and network resources on which to run a wide variety of experiments.
- Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a browser based tool that allows investigators and/or their staff to create web based case report forms (CRFs) and surveys to collect data from a variety of clinical research study types. REDCap use has been expanded for other uses such as mouse colony management. REDCap is on HIPAA and FERPA compliant servers at the Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC).
- The newest research management tool introduced to the university is LabArchives. It is FREE to use by anyone on campus. If you are collaborating with researchers off campus, then they can be included in any PI’s account as a user instead of a guest. You can find more information here.
