Research Data and Computing

Research Data and Computing (RDC) is newly formed division of The Research Institute, created to address the increasing needs of IT support on research data pipeline, bioinformatics, and high performance computing. RDC provides IT assistance to researchers on data processing from acquisition, curation, management, analysis, to visualization, including both clinical and non-clinical basic research data. RDC also serves in the role of bridging collaboration between internal and external researchers, researchers across centers and cores especially in the areas of biostatistics, bioinformatics, mathematical and computational modeling.

RDC is in the planning stage to create a comprehensive research data warehouse: integrating clinical, research, 'omics and other data. RDC will also build a high performance computing cluster to give user access to large volumes of data (such as 'omics data), and the ability to do Bioinformatics analyses and other computing. For other projects with potentially broader impact, RDC will seek feedback from Research IT Advisory Council (RITAC) and prioritization from Computational Research Steering Committee (CRSC).

We are very interested in hearing from researchers about how we can improve the services we currently provide and what additional services are needed. Email your suggestions to

Service requests can be submitted by emailing, or by calling the RIT Service Desk at (614) 355-5600 Monday through Friday between 8 AM and 5 PM.
