Enabling Biomedical Data Driven Research at Stanford

Research IT provides common infrastructure, and consultation services

Research IT is responsible for several of Stanford's centralized biomedical infrastructure like Stanford's Clinical Data Warehouse (aka STARR, fka STRIDE) and research data management platform like REDCap. Our team designs, develops and maintains these systems. We partner with other organizations on campus for IRB compliance and data security. Our centralized infrasructure efforts are subsidized and hence governed by SoM administrative leadership.

Aside from infrastructure components, Research IT offers a confidential consulting service to Stanford University biomedical researchers on topics related to technology integration, research data capture, compliance and management, data privacy & security issues. These services are provided under SoM administrative guidelines. We encourage researchers to contact us as early as possible in the design phase of a research project and preferably well in advance of IRB or grant submission. Request a consultation now.

Consulting services often lead to longer term partnership. These partnerships can result in custom solutions or reusable infrastucture. Several of Stanford infrastructure components have been fully funded by faculty projects (e.g. CHOIR).
